After inaugurating iconic new secretariat on April 30, Sunday, Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao (KCR) has revved up his team of ministers into work mode from May 1, Monday.

The Election Commission’s scheduled for Karnataka gives us a hint of holding polls on one day for Telangana too, thus completing the whole process, including counting of votes by December 16, expiry of the present house. Then, the poll notification may be issued in first or second week of November. Then, the schedule will be announced by the end of October, 2023. So, the CM is left with hardly five months to finish all administrative works.

The files signed by KCR immediately after taking his chambers are: Regularization of 5,544 contract workers in 40 departments of 10 ministries, release of funds for second phase of Dalita Bandhu, providing revised diet charges to hostel students, and finalizing guidelines for double bedrooms built by the government and permitting issue of certificates to  Podu cultivator tribals, among others. Chief Secretary Santi Kumari, IAS was with him on the occasion.

The Rs 5,180 crore canal extension works will bring waters to Munugode in Nalgonda district and Chevella in Ranga Reddy district.


KCR works on Monday too 

Though May 1, Monday is a government holiday as it is May Day, CM KCR came to Secretariat and took up some regular office work. Interestingly, his first two days in new Secretariat fell on government holidays. Still,the regular work went on as most ministers and secretaries went by their routines. This indicated the seriousness of the CM in speeding up day to day activity at the top level.
