HYDERABAD: Chief Minister and TRS boss K Chandrasekhar Rao sounded the poll bugle from Jogulamba Gadwal district on Friday urging people to vote for the TRS in the next elections to ensure continued development of Telangana.  Hinting that polls are around the corner, he said, “We made the fledgeling Telangana State stand first on all fronts in terms of development among other states within four years. Please bless us and vote for our party to continue this development further,” and accused Congress leaders of creating hurdles in the state’s development. 

KCR made an appeal to the electors in Mahbubnagar, Jogulamba-Gadwal and Nagarkurnool and Wanaparthy districts, that fall under the Palamuru region. 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. So far his government had provided irrigation facility to 6.5 lakh acres in the region in four years, he said. The government would start 119 new BC residential schools in the State, he said.
