    Former city BJP president Bethi Mahender Reddy has revealed that action will be taken against officials who misused funds from the Beti Bachao Beti Padao scheme. Reddy filed a complaint with the Prime Minister’s Office in Delhi, stating that officials had stolen funds intended for the scheme, which was created by Prime Minister Modi to support the future of girl children.

    On July 26, Reddy filed a complaint with the PMO office. On August 10, the Central Women and Child Welfare Department directed the Telangana State Women and Child Welfare Department to investigate the matter and submit a report.

However, the District Welfare Officer and District Child Protection Officer falsely claimed that the money had been spent.
