Stop Dalit Bandhu: FGG Writes To Election Commission

The TRS government is going to launch ‘Dalit Bandhu’ a welfare scheme aimed at Dalit communities, in a few more days. Telangana CM KCR has taken up this scheme quite prestigiously but there is criticism on KCR for accepting that this was politically motivated and also in view of Huzurabad by-election.

Despite the criticism, KCR is making his moves and the other day over a hundred people from Huzurabad reached Pragathi Bhavan. KCR informed in detail how this scheme is going to benefit the poor and weaker sections. As per the reports, KCR is looking for a suitable date to launch it and most probably it might happen in August.

But well, even before its launch, ‘Dalit Bandhu’ has reached the Election Commission of India (ECI). Forum For Good Governance (FGG) has written to ECI and urged the poll panel to stop the launch of this scheme.

In the letter submitted to ECI, the representatives of FGG claimed that ‘Dalit Bandhu’ is brought only with political intentions and it should be implemented at the moment. Further FGG added that until the by-election of Huzrabad gets completed, this scheme should be stopped from getting launched.

Accordingly FGG requested the ECI to send directives to TRS government on ‘Dalit Bandhu.’ But ECI can’t send any instructions to the TRS government because there is no mode code of conduct as they are yet to take a call on the Huzurabad by-election.

This would be a shocker sort off for the TRS government but they are well over the line for election code.
