Budget Session: KCR satirical response to Bhatti’s question on unemployment allowance
Responding to Congress Legislature Party (CLP) leader Mallu Bhatti Vikramarka’s question on unemployment allowance, Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao said that the Telangana government had lost Rs 1 lakh crore revenue because of coronavirus pandemic.
“How can we implement the unemployment allowance when the government was not in a position to pay salaries to its employees,” he mentioned. However, the CM said that the state government is in the process of framing modalities for identification of unemployed. He further said that his government will provide social security pensions and ration cards for all eligible beneficiaries.
