Stating this at the foundation laying stone for the southern region campus of Indian Institute of Public Health (IIPH) at Rajendranagar on Tuesday, he hoped the institute would get university status.

Explaining about the various activities taken up by his government for the development of the state and welfare of the people, the Chief Minister quipped that unfortunately those with conservative ideas and fixed notions were not appreciative of the government programmes.
