Hyderabad, Aug.2 (Hydnow): Finance Minister T Harish Rao alleged that the Union government was hatching a conspiracy to abolish the MGNREGA scheme and was trying to leave the livelihood of the laborers working under the scheme in the lurch.
Minister Harish Rao on Tuesday wrote a letter to Union Minister Kishan Reddy, saying that the Centre is confining the workers to only 20 works and is deliberately pending the workers’ wages worth about Rs 10,000 crore belonging to Telangana State.
“The Centre’s decision will leave many workers jobless and will affect the financial status of many workers in rural areas,” he pointed out.
The Minister also reminded that the State government had passed a resolution linking the MGNREGA scheme with the agriculture sector and the same was forwarded to the Union government, but the Centre has weakened the scheme affecting the livelihood of many workers.
Harish Rao alleged that the Union government was trying to create hurdles in the progress of Telangana State and as part of its conspiracy, the Modi government was conducting the inspection of MGNREGA scheme job cards in Telangana. (Hydnow)
I could never wrap my head around Bollywood’s obsession with continuously addressing condom as a chhatri or an umbrella. Not only it’s cringe to hear repeatedly but also, it somewhere defeats the whole purpose with which films around these subjects are made. Moreover, picking a taboo subject and making a film on it can turn out to be quite risky if you don’t stick to the agenda and beat around the bush. Thankfully, Rakul Preet Singh’s Chhatriwali, directed by Tejas Prabhaa Vijay Deoskar, doesn’t digress much, and follows a crisp screenplay. There are some flaws here and there, but with all the humour and lighter moments, they can be somewhat overlooked.
