    During these meetings, there is a possibility that the state government will introduce a white paper on the irrigation sector. The government aims to fulfill two more of the six guarantees promised by the Congress party during the elections. The implementation of free bus travel for women in RTC buses and a guarantee of medical services up to Rs.10 lakh under the Arogyashri scheme is already in progress.

    The government is now preparing to fulfill the promises of providing free electricity up to 200 units per month and gas cylinders for the poor at Rs.500. The funding for these guarantees will be discussed during the Cabinet meeting. Approximately 81,54,158 people have applied for 200 units of free electricity per month, while 91.49 lakh people have applied for a gas cylinder at Rs.500. The electricity distribution companies have estimated that the government will need to pay at least Rs.4,200 crores per year to provide free electricity. These issues will be discussed in the upcoming cabinet meeting.
