HYDERABAD: Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao on Friday said that he was inspired by Mahatma Gandhi in giving priority to welfare schemes, implementing farmer-centric programmes and focusing on rural development. Addressing the concluding ceremony of Swatantra Bharata Vajrotsavalu at the HICC, KCR said that developmental programmes would be continued and the fruits of development shared among the poor.
