Warangal: Never before has the region witnessed such a fast-paced development, said Minister for Panchayat Raj Errabelli Dayakar Rao, inaugurating the Rythu Vedika and Palle Prakruthi Vanam at Katrapally village under Raiparthy mandal in Warangal Rural district on Wednesday. "The credit goes to Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao who is hellbent on developing the rural areas. No other CM in the past had worked for the all-round development of the gram panchayats (GPs)," he said.
The Minister informed that the State was allocating funds to GPs on par with the Central government. In all, the State had been releasing Rs 339 crore every month for the development activities in GPs, he said, stating that Telangana is well ahead of all other States in the country.

The Centre was also looking to dilute the free power supply scheme by metering the pump sets, the Minister said adding that it's high time that the farmers need to observe the developments taking place in the country.
Errabelli inaugurated several development works worth around Rs 1.57 crore in Moripirala, Keshavapuram, Perkedu, Katrapally and Raiparthy mandal headquarters in which Rural Collector M Haritha and other officials were presen
