Nine promises out of 15 have been fulfilled which were made on the occasion of Independence Day by Chief Minister Nara Chandrababu Naidu. The State government is granting funds for making Kurnool a Smart City, he said. The Deputy Chief Minister expressed his dismay over the Union government for denying Special Category Status to Andhra Pradesh.
He lamented the Opposition parties for belittling the achievements of the government. A six-lane road connecting Chittoor from Kurnool has almost nearing completion, he said. The government is also striving to set up a steel plant in Kadapa.
He further stated that before the start of kharif season adequate fertilisers and seeds are made available to the farmers. Lambasting the Congress rule, he said, farmers faced lot of problems in getting fertilisers and seeds during the Congress regime. Telugu Desam Party is dedicated for the welfare of the farmers and set up corporations for Kapus and Brahamins, he reminded.
District In-charge Minister Atchannaidu said that party has to be strengthened by taking the development activities to the public.
