"No other state has been allocating such a huge amount on welfare schemes," he declared.Though, the new state came into existence three years ago, it has been progressing at an impressive 21.5% growth rate, he said. Explaining the welfare schemes, he said Telangana not only enhanced pensions to Rs 1,000 per month but also extended the scheme to single women and beedi workers in the state. He said hospital deliveries and registrations were on the rise after the introduction of KCR Kits for women who undergo delivery in government hospitals.

"Of the Rs 1,000 crore allocated to weavers of power looms, Rs 800 crore is being spent only at Sircilla. An apparel park is also being set up in Sircilla and about 6,000 women would be trained to work in the park," he said.
