Hyderabad: Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao said on Tuesday that Telangana’s rural economy depended on caste-based professions exercised by the backward classes involved in manufacturing and service sectors in rural areas, which in turn are linked to the progress of agriculture.
The Chief Minister observed that unlike North India, the Telangana BCs practice caste-based professions. “Therefore, the state government has launched different programs to support them. As a first step, the government restored the village reservoirs as part of the Mission Kakatiya program, which improved irrigation and associated occupations. Thus, the government has breathed new life into caste-based professions and made Telangana an ideal state for these professions in the country, ”he said.
Chandrashekhar Rao pointed out that the distribution of sheep for the communities of Golla, Kuruma and Yadava as well as the fish farming in the basins and reservoirs of the villages for Gangaputra, Mudiraj and other fishing communities are working well and empowering these communities.

The fish population had increased dramatically after the construction of projects such as the Kaleshwaram Elevator Irrigation Project, which in turn filled several water bodies, including village reservoirs. As a result, every village tank in the state has become a center for fish breeding, he added.
“Under these circumstances, measures should be taken to export these fish to other towns and villages that do not have access to seashores,” he said, adding that fish farming in village aquariums will be under. supervision of the Fisheries Department. He called on officials to take action to offer membership to eligible young people over the age of 18 in fishermen’s cooperative societies.
The chief minister recalled that the community of weavers, which was the largest provider of jobs in the state after the agricultural sector, was in the midst of the doldrums in the former Andhra Pradesh. But after the state was formed, the Telangana government took steps to revive looms and power looms. Likewise, other communities like the grog tappers, Nayi Brahmin (barbers), Rajaka (washers) have also received the much needed boost through various programs.
