Grand Celebration for State Formation Day

One of the primary decisions made during the meeting was to organize a grand celebration for the state’s formation day on June 2. The Cabinet has decided to invite Sonia Gandhi, a prominent leader of the All India Congress Committee (AICC), to the event.

Collectors Assigned Full Responsibility for Grain Procurement

In a significant move, the Cabinet has delegated the complete responsibility of grain procurement to the collectors. The Chief Minister emphasized the importance of ensuring that every grain is purchased to prevent any loss to the farmers. This decision aims to streamline the procurement process and safeguard farmers’ interests.

Support Price for Rain-Damaged Grain

The Cabinet also decided that even grain affected by unseasonal rains will be procured at the support price. It was firmly stated that not a single rupee less than the Minimum Support Price (MSP) should be paid for the grain. This decision is intended to protect farmers from incurring losses due to weather-related damages.

Procurement of Fine Rice within the State

Another notable decision was that all the fine rice required by the state will be procured within Telangana. Additionally, a bonus of ₹500 per quintal will be given for fine paddy, encouraging local farmers to produce and sell fine rice.

Strict Actions Against Fake Seed Sellers

The Cabinet has also resolved to take stringent actions against sellers of fake seeds. This measure aims to protect the agricultural sector from the detrimental effects of counterfeit products and ensure the quality of seeds available to farmers.

Allocation for Modernization of Government Schools

In a significant step towards improving education, the Cabinet allocated ₹600 crores for the modernization of government schools. This fund will be used to upgrade facilities and infrastructure, providing better educational environments for students.

Committee for Amm Adarsha Schools

A Cabinet subcommittee, headed by Minister Sridhar Babu, has been established to oversee the works related to Amm Adarsha Schools. This committee will ensure that the development and operations of these schools meet the desired standards.

Repairs and Expert Committee Recommendations for Kaleshwaram Project

The Cabinet decided to carry out repairs on the Kaleshwaram project. It was resolved to follow the recommendations of expert committees regarding Medigadda, Annaram, and Sundilla projects. Minister Ponguleti Srinivas Reddy mentioned that the Cabinet discussed the interim report provided by the National Dam Safety Authority (NDSA) concerning Medigadda. According to NDSA, repairing Medigadda might not guarantee a permanent solution, and the water storage capacity could be compromised. Therefore, the government is considering temporary arrangements to ensure water availability for farmers.

These decisions reflect the Telangana government’s commitment to addressing the immediate needs of the state’s agricultural sector and improving infrastructure. By assigning grain procurement responsibilities to collectors, ensuring fair prices for damaged crops, and modernizing educational facilities, the government aims to provide comprehensive support to its citizens.
