Mahbubnagar: If the foundation stones laid in the Mahbubnagar district for various projects were lined up it would become a big anicut, K Chandrasekhar Rao, TRS president said while addressing the political training camp for TRS party workers at Devarakadra mandal headquarters on Saturday. In an emotional outburst, KCR said that former chief minister Chandrababu Naidu who claimed to have adopted Palamuru district had not allocated even Rs. 9 to the district in his nine-year rule. He underlined the importance of a wide discussion on the State of Telangana in each and every village throughout Telangana. "It is high time all Telangana people came on a single platform," he said and announced that more and more leaders from other parties would join TRS soon. Implying that Ala Venkateswara Reddy would be the Assembly candidate from Devarakadra, KCR appealed to the people to vote for him in the next Assembly elections who would work wholeheartedly for the people. "Venkateswara Reddy is young, educated and hard-working," he asserted. He wondered as to why Bhima, Kavlakurti and Nettempadu projects were not completed. He held the MLAs, ministers from this area responsible for the inaction. He said that out of the Rs. 62,000 crore budget for 2013-14, Rs. 47,000 crore was the revenue from the ten Telangana districts. "There should be a thorough discussion in each village on the issue of voting to Andhra-based parties," he added. Reiterating the sops to be distributed by the Telangana government once it was formed, KCR said that the widows and the aged persons would be given Rs. 1,000 pension and Rs. 1500 for the physically handicapped. The government would build independent houses with Rs. 2.5 lakh for everyone, free and compulsory education from KG to PG to everyone, he added. KCR has allotted Rs. 10 lakh from MPLAD funds for desilting the Koil Sagar canals. He also announced a Rs. 2 lakh compensation to the fire mishap victims of Devarakadra from TRS funds. Ala Venkateswara Reddy said that achieving separate State is the only aim before us to safeguard the natural resources of Telangana.
