HYDERABAD: Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao turned counsellor for TRS MLAs and MPs on the final day of the training camp, organised by the party, at Nagarjunasagar on Monday. He took two classes for them, one on “public relations” and another on “irrigation projects”.
Rao advised the people’s representatives of TRS not to run after money. “Earn a good reputation. There are so many ways for one to earn money. But being people’s representatives, we should live for the people,” he exhorted them.
Stating that the MLAs and MPs would be remembered in history, as they were elected for the first time in the newly-created Telangana state, he stressed, “Let all of you utilise this opportunity and earn a good name. You should have the zeal to work in a better manner.”
Pointing out that elected representatives have lost credibility in recent times, he advised the party lawmakers to try hard to improve the image of people’s representatives in the society.
“If you improve the image of elected representatives and work hard, it will benefit the party. TRS will retain power in 2019 elections too. When we are determined to win again, work culture will automatically come,” Rao said.
On the irrigation sector in the state, the Chief Minister used Google maps and explained to the leaders how the State was going to utilise the Krishna and Godavari waters. The new irrigation projects that were conceived, their location, water drawing source point, where the lifts would be used and where they wanted to use gravity for diverting the river waters, were explained by the Chief Minister.
He said some projects like Palamuru and Kalwakurthy would re-engineered. “We will construct projects to fully utilise water allocated to Telangana in Godavari and Krishna rivers,” he added.
Earlier, ASCI former advisor G Surender Reddy spoke on industrial sector. He said TS had a lot of opportunities for industries like biotech, pharma, IT and other sectors. IT and Panchayat Raj Minister KT Rama Rao explained the industrial policy of the State.
