Hyderabad: Telangana chief minister A Revanth Reddy promised to fill 2 lakh government job vacancies by December 2024.
“We are committed to our promise to unemployed youth,” he said, addressing the event intended to present job appointment letters to staff nurses at LB stadium in the city.
Appointment letters were given to a total of 6956 women who are now recruited as staff nurses by the state government.
On the occasion, he also slammed the previous Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRS) dispensation for “failing” to deliver on the promise of jobs.
“This is only the first step in keeping the promise of providing 2 lakh jobs in a year. What I said that all the youth of Telangana will get jobs only if the jobs of ‘some’ are destroyed is coming true,” he remarked.
Slamming former minister T Harish Rao for calling the staff nurses appointments “a political distraction amid unmet promises of the Congress government”, Revanth said that the BRS leader is opposing jobs and “K Chandrashekhar Rao should instill some sense in his nephew.”
He also attacked KCR for giving the MLC seat to his daughter K Kavitha who lost in Nizamabad in the 2018 Lok Sabha elections.
Deputy chief minister Mallu Bhatti Vikramarka, health minister Damodara Rajanarsimha, R&B minister Komatireddy Venkatareddy, minister for Forests Konda Surekha, agriculture minister Tummala Nageswara Rao also attended the event.
