It came as a big shock to the caretaker Telangana government after the Election Comission has given stern orders to stop the implementation of second phase Rythu Bandhu after it stopped the distribution of Bathukamma sarees to women.
The EC restricted the TRS from enforcing the second phase of the government’s ambitious Rythu Bandhu project for farmers. It instructed the government to stop the distribution of cheques to the farmers immediately.
The initiatives, Rythu Bandhu and distributing Bathukamma sarees were major elements of the TRS government’s campaign for upcoming elections, the EC had declared. It will indeed raise huge trouble for the party and caretaker CM KCR if he does not come up with some new ideas to campaign and attract people’s attention, say political analysts.
