KCR came up with a new promise of providing insurance cover of Rs 5 lakhs for the dalit families in Telangana. Without stopping here, KCR announced reservations for Dalits in the businesses which will help them economically.

KCR interacted with them and collected theif feedback about the Dalit Bandhu. He wanted them to express their ideas of how to implement the Dalit Bandhu scheme in the state. On a pilot basis, the Dalit Bandhu will start from Huzurabad constituency. KCR is discussing about how to extend the scheme across the state in the coming future. All the eligible beneficiaries will be provided with a financial assistance of Rs 10 lakhs in Telangana. They will be supported to take up businesses in the state which are related to the government and private. There are debates going on about how KCR will pool the funds for the scheme as the state is in crisis because of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
