“The manifesto was prepared after interacting with people of all sections and listening to their problems. It provides practical and viable solutions to all the problems of Hyderabad.

IT minister KT Rama Rao, endowments minister A Indrakaran Reddy, TRS senior leader D Srinivas, were among those present.
