Opposition parties criticised Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao for launching Grama Jyothi scheme. T-TDP leader Errabelli Dayakar Rao alleged that Telangana government will not release a single rupee for Grama Jyothi scheme. He flayed the new scheme as a publicity stunt. TPCC working president Bhatti Vikramarka said the new scheme was launched only to get publicity to KCR and KTR in villages. MLC Shabbir Ali said that Telangana government handed over responsibilities to villages without allocating funds. Congress MP Gutha Sukhender Reddy asked KCR to tell the difference between Mana Ooru-Mana Pranalika and Grama Jyothi.
