Addressing a public meeting after laying the foundation stone for Gattu Lift Irrigation Scheme at Gadwal, he listed various developmental programmes and welfare schemes being implemented by his government.
Claiming that several Union ministers and ministers of other States were praising the performance of TS government, the Chief Minister asked people to judge the functioning of his government after closely examining the developmental works.”Is there any other state in the country that supplies 24x7 power to agricultural sector free of cost? Is any State providing Rs 8,000 investment support to each farmer per acre every year? As I myself is a farmer, I know their plight.
He promised to develop Palamuru region on a par with Godavari districts in Andhra Pradesh in the next two years by completing all pending irrigation projects.
