KCR To Hold Review Meet On Pandemic Control And Joblessness
Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao will hold a high-level meeting with all District Collectors and agricultural officials at Pragati Bhavan on June 16.
The minister will hold discussions on the coronavirus situation and measures to be taken in the future to control it. This meeting is being conducted because the center has been targeting the State that it had not been conducting enough COVID tests leading to a vague picture of the situation.
The Chief Minister is likely to present a factsheet on how the cases have been increasing in other States, including Andhra Pradesh though they have been claiming to have conducted more tests.
The minister is also likely to take up another issue of joblessness especially in rural Telangana areas and work out a strategy to address the impending unemployment at the grassroots level by linking the farm-related works with Employment Guarantee Scheme (MNREGA).
In the meet, KCR will also direct the officials on the implementation of the linking of the agriculture-related works with employment guarantee schemes ensuring jobless workers get some relief in the lockdown period.
