TG Registration for New Vehicles and State Emblem Redesign, Telangana Cabinet has decided to implement two additional guarantees, marking a significant step towards fulfilling the promises made during the Congress’s pre-Parliament election campaign. This strategic decision, made during a comprehensive Cabinet meeting chaired by Chief Minister A. Revanth Reddy, includes the green light for conducting a caste census in the state.
Financial Impact Assessment Underway
The government has already initiated the financial impact assessment for two pivotal promises: providing 200 units of free power and supplying LPG cylinders at an affordable ₹500 each. Ministers for Revenue, Ponguleti Srinivas Reddy, and Industries and IT, D. Sridhar Babu, highlighted that Chief Minister A. Revanth Reddy will unveil the implementation details during the upcoming budget session of the Assembly, commencing on February 8.
Embracing Change: TS to TG
In a move to bolster the state’s identity, the State Council of Ministers has decided to officially change the state’s name from TS to TG. This transformation extends to vehicle registrations, where all new vehicles will now bear the TG tag. Minister Ponguleti Srinivas Reddy emphasized that this change would also apply to various institutions, aligning with the state’s sentiment.
Upholding Self-Respect and Aspirations
Minister Srinivas Reddy expressed concern over the past decade, citing a lack of protection for the state’s self-respect due to the ‘dictatorial tendencies’ of the previous BRS government. He emphasized that this decision aligns with the aspirations of those who ardently fought for Telangana’s separate statehood.
Advancements in Education and Judicial Infrastructure
The Cabinet’s progressive decisions include the upgrade of 65 ITIs to advanced training centers. These centers will introduce new courses tailored to industry demands, equipping the youth with relevant skills. Additionally, the allocation of 100 acres of land to the Telangana High Court signifies a commitment to enhancing the state’s judicial infrastructure.
Symbolic Cleansing and Filling Vacancies
The Cabinet underscored its commitment to cleansing symbols reflecting the arrogance of the previous dispensation. This symbolic shift aims to ensure that state symbols mirror the true aspirations of Telangana. Discussions also touched upon the critical issue of government post vacancies, leading to a decision to identify and fill these positions promptly. Ministers Srinivas Reddy and Sridhar Babu affirmed the government’s dedication to addressing these vacancies and emphasized the initiation of comprehensive exercises in this regard.
In summary, Telangana is on the brink of transformative changes, embracing new guarantees, reshaping its identity, and prioritizing education and judicial advancements. The decisions made in the recent Cabinet meeting reflect a commitment to fulfilling promises and aligning with the aspirations of the people.
