Adilabad: Forest minister Allola Indrakaran Reddy lamented that the union government was not extending aid to Telangana for registering heavy losses caused by natural calamity. He toured Indervelli mandal hit by rains on Saturday.
Indrakaran said that the Centre did not respond to a request made by the State government for an immediate relief of Rs 1,000 crore. He informed that the value of the damage by the incessant rains was estimated to be Rs 1,400 crore. He opined that the union government forgot its duty to support the States when they were hit by natural calamities.
The minister faulted the union government for imposing GST on dairy products. He demanded it to release Rs 1,000 crore and help the state to handle the losses caused by the floods. He later consoled family members of Kumra Eshwari Bai who lost her husband to some disease in Indervelli mandal centre.
In a related development, Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao called up Indrakaran Reddy and found out the situation of floods in the erstwhile Adilabad district. He told the minister to be vigilant of rains and take precautionary steps to prevent human loss and damage of property. He asked Indrakaran to extend relief activities and keep ready helipads if required.
Chhatriwali Movie Review: Rakul Preet Singh’s film is informative but lags in bits
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.
