He took the decision while examining the grievances already made to the government by the Rajaka and Naayi Brahmin Associations. He directed CMO Secretary Bhopal Reddy to issue GO immediately in this regard following which Principle Secretary for BC welfare Burra Venkatesham has issued a GO in this regard. This free power supply will come into effect from April 1.

The CM said that the Telangana government’s goal was to uplift the most vulnerable sections (MBC s) and that the state government has been already implementing a number of schemes for their welfare. The decision will provide up to 250 (two hundred and fifty) units of quality electricity free of cost to cutting shops, laundry shops and Dobi ghats from the village level to GHMC.

Thus, millions of Rajaka and Nai Brahmin families in Telangana, who have been living on the basis of caste occupation for generations, will be benefited and help those artisans using machines reducing the physical labour, as well as improve their financial position.
