Golden Telangana..a promise made to lakhs by the founder of the TRS party and the Chief Minister of Telangana KCR. But is it for real..? While a series of incidents kept questioning the claim made by KCR and his team, a bereaved family reminded how an unkept promise is haunting them.
Tollywood playback singer Jai Srinivas needs no introduction. The singer who recently succumbed to corona sung devotional, patriotic, and folk albums. The singer is well known for his songs on Telangana and its culture. His song ‘Desam Manade’ which motivated thousands of people, is now a tearful memory for his bereaved family.
Reportedly, the family has spent over Rs 29 lakhs for the singer’s treatment which went in vain. Speaking with Tolivelugu, Srinivas’ wife along with her two daughters reminded the unkept promise made by KCR to render financial help. After three months, the family of the voice that helped the government assume office to realize the ‘Golden’ dream is now unable to pay their bills.
Telangana Cultural Sarathi, the organization set up to support artists as well showed bare hands to the family. While Srinivas also sang many hit songs, the family didn’t receive any help from the government or MAA under the artist quota.
It is to the known knowledge that the government has been sanctioning houses in Chitrapuri for poor artisans. However, Srinivas’ family was not sanctioned with this facility as well. The family was supported by ration supplies provided by some of those who received help from Srinivas in the past.
