Why KCR's Press meet is a huge hit?

While corona cases continue to mount in Telangana, Chief Minister Chandrasekhar Rao addressed a press meet on Sunday evening to address various problems that are being faced by common people. KCR has expressed his government's complete commitment to citizens and families who were hit hard by Covid-19 pandemic.

After the cabinet meeting on Sunday, KCR has delivered another impressive presser which certainly is a big hit among masses. The TRS supreme, who started his presser by announcing the extension of lockdown in state till 7 May, has reiterated the need to continue ongoing situation. Based on the situation and number of cases in the days to come, next decision will be taken on 5th May after a cabinet meeting. Some Key and welcoming measures are announced to address and combat major problems of common people of state.

Considering the crisis, KCR appealed all the landlords to defer collecting rents for March, April and May. 'I strictly urge all owners to take the deferred amount only in the following months as installments, without any interest. It's not a request, it is an order because we're making it a law. Renters, if harassed by landlords, can dial 100 for police help' - said KCR. This really is a big sigh of relief for many families who cannot furnish their monthly bills.

In a little surprising announcement, KCR declared a ban on food delivery apps like Swiggy and Zomato starting 20th April. This decision was taken following a pizza delivery guy who delivered to 70+ families tested positive for Corona virus in Delhi. However, e-commerce companies which deliver groceries like Big Basket, Grofers and Amazon Fresh will be functional.

The government of Telangana is allowing deferment of property tax and fixed electricity charges till May end. Electricity billing will be on actual consumption. All deferred payments can be made without any penalty or interest.

Payment of tution/school fees is a major worry for any head of the house. So, to ease financial burden during lockdown, KCR asked private schools not to increase tution fee for the ongoing and upcoming academic years. Also, he ordered that all schools should collect the tution fees only on monthly bases, and not on quarterly or semi-annual basis.

As a token of appreciation for having worked tremendously as the frontline workers during this crisis period, KCR announced a 10% bonus to all Police personnel.

Even for the month of May, all the white cardholders will receive Rs 1500 in their bank accounts and and 12 Kg of rice will be given to each member of the family.

The cabinet also decided to transfer the Gachibowli stadium and sports complex, along with over nine acres of open land, to Health department. A sports complex which is developed into a 1500-bedded hospital will start treating COVID patients from this Monday.

Despite a measly income in the form of taxes and dismal economic data, KCR's regime managed to announce several reliefs to the people of Telangana. With a view to keep the farmers confident, CM assured that government will buy every food grain from farmers. For the first time in history, govt is set to procure Paddy, Maize, Jowar, Pulses, Sunflower and everything at a remunerative price.
