Hyderabad: Nizamabad MP K Kavitha gave a clarion call to youth for launching a movement to bring change for a strong leadership at the Centre that would ensure all-round development of the nation. She felt that the nation did not made visible progress as the governments failed to utilise the available resources to provide essential infrastructure to people. She was addressing the regional conference of National Students’ Parliament, Kerala-2019 on ‘Casts and it’s Discontents’ organised at Thiruvananthapuram as part of the ‘Festival on Democracy’ celebrations on the occasion of diamond jubilee celebrations of Kerala Legislative Assembly..
Addressing the gathering, Kavitha said key sectors like education, health, transport, irrigation and drinking water, were not developed as per the increasing needs of the growing population, due to lack of vision and will among the political leadership. She blamed the Congress and BJP which ruled the country for over 70 years since Independence, for the sorry state of affairs. “But things are about to change. Regional parties like TRS have recognised people’s growing needs and changed their priorities to meet people’s demands,” she said. She explained Telangana’s progress in terms of irrigation, health, education and industrial growth. The Nizamabad Parliament member elaborated on the sorry state of affairs in undivided Andhra Pradesh where Telangana region was neglected, and the turnaround achieved by the young State after bifurcation under the leadership of Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao. “Rythu Bandhu scheme is the best example for his visionary leadership. The unique scheme is being emulated by many States and even the Central government, but none are able to replicate its large scale,” she added. She said there will be a demand from people of other States to emulate Telangana government’s initiatives in their respective States. Kavitha emphasised the need for commitment among political parties and leaders towards people and the nation. She advised people to ensure that the political parties are compelled to implement their electoral promises, which can be achieved only due to involvement of students.
