KCR led Telangana government has announced the flagship scheme Dalit Bandhu, that focus on empowering the Dalit community. The state government is making all the arrangements to launch the scheme soon.

However, a request has made its way to the Election Commission of India (ECI) to issue directives to see that the scheme is stopped. The request was made by the Forum For Good Governance (FGG) reportedly.

Quoting Chief Minister KCR as saying that the scheme was announced keeping Huzurabad elections in mind, the Social services organization FGG had appealed to the election body ECI to stop the scheme, media reports claimed.

In the letter, the FGG said that the newly announced scheme should be stopped at least till the commencement of Huzurabad by elections.

It is also said that the organization opined that the scheme would affect the voters in the forthcoming elections and therefore the scheme should be stopped from the launch.

Looking at the possibility of ECI issuing orders to the Telangana government in this regard, the election body cannot do so as the election code of conduct didn't come into effect in the constituency.
