CM helping restore dignity of Brahmins, says Minister

Foundation stone laid for integrated complex for Brahmin community

There was a time when Brahmins in Telangana felt difficult to identify themselves with their community. Be it the changes that took place in the due course of time, or the consequent damages caused by socio-economic changes, they were at the receiving end, said Minister for Energy and Scheduled Castes Development G. Jagadish Reddy.

“How society should be, or how the future would be, it was the responsibility of the Brahmins, who read the Panchangam to forecast the year ahead,” he said. There is a need to thank our Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao, who is on a mission to restore your lost dignity through Brahmana Sadanams, he added.

The Minister who laid the foundation for ‘Viprahitha Brahmana Sadanam’ (VBS) of the Telangana Brahmin Sankshema Parishad (TBSP) on Saturday morning, addressed a congregation of Brahmins in Durajpalli village later.

Second in State

The Sadanam is a second such integrated complex in the State for the welfare of the community, first being a six-acre facility coming up in Ranga Reddy district. The proposed building, expected to cost ₹ 75 lakh, will be completed within 12 months.

“The Sadanam should be an abode of the Telangana Brahmin culture and traditions,” Mr. Reddy said. If need be, an additional ₹50 lakh would be given for the construction, he assured.

All facilities

The VBS at Suryapet would define development for about 5000 brahmins in the district. It will house a coaching centre to prepare students for competitive exams, a marriage hall, meeting halls, rest houses for visiting priests and provide counselling on various schemes available for beneficiaries.

“It should be a one-stop centre for Brahmins seeking help and assistance for their development and self- sustenance,” Advisor to the Government and Chairman of TBSP K.V. Ramana Chary said.
