If Finance Minister Etela Rajender’s statement in the Asssembly has to be believed, the intensive household survey conducted by the TRS government recently had helped in reuniting couples who were divided for divorce or got separated due to family disputes. According to the Finance Minister, many couples who had either applied for divorce or living separately for a long time came together following the survey. “Such are the benefits of the household survey.
The survey was intended to help the government to protect the welfare and interests of the weaker sections including the SCs, STs, BCs and minorities,” he observed. When MIM Floor leader Akbarudsin Owaisi asked whether the government has any intensions of tabling the report of the survey in the Assembly, Rajender said that as per the directions of the court confidential and private matters of individuals in the survey cannot be made public.
