As against Rs. 98,000 Crore allocated under the revised budget for 2021-22, this year the allocation has been reduced to Rs. 73,000 crore. He said this reduction harmed the rural poor, especially in the Telangana State.
Consequently, the number of man-days has been reduced from 16 crores to 10 crores impacting the livelihood of Telangana labourers. Further, he said that the Modi Govt has stopped funding for various works such as school compound walls, plantations, digging trenches for water, etc., Consequently, about 55.52 lakh job cardholders in Telangana were not finding adequate work.
