KCR, as the Chief Minister is popularly referred to, said the scheme is unconditional and will be immediately rolled out. He further clarified that members of all communities, castes and religions will be eligible, irrespective of any qualifying criteria.
"The people of Chintamadaka can purchase things like tractors, farmlands, harvesting machines. All the 2,000 families in this village will be benefited with this scheme," the Chief Minister said.
KCR's announcement will cost Rs 2,000 crore to the government exchequer. "I will sanction the amount immediately," he said.
The government, he claimed, has also asked the Collector to prepare a health chart of the village by conducting a medical check-up of all the residents. The project would subsequently be implemented throughout the constituency.
Amid loud cheers from the crowd on his announcements, KCR said the scheme is his expression of gratitude to the people of Chintamadaka "who have made me what I am today".
