The Chief Minister took the decision to provide free power supply after examining the representations submitted by Rajaka and Nayee Brahmin communities. This govt move will help hairdressers and washermen to use modern electric equipment in their profession which will reduce both physical labour as well as ease their financial burden.
Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao pointed out that the Telangana government was implementing numerous schemes for the welfare and empowerment of the most vulnerable sections in the State. “Millions of Rajaka and Nayee Brahmin families in Telangana, who have been relying on caste-based occupations for livelihood for generations, will benefit from the decision,” he said.
