Union Minister of State for Tourism K. Chiranjeevi said that the UPA II government would come to power again for the third time in a row in the 2014 elections as the Congress had done a lot for the uplift of the poor and the downtrodden sections of the society.

He said that farmers would prosper if Rahul Gandhi becomes Prime Minister. He appealed to the people to vote for Congress and make Rahul Gandhi the Prime Minister of the country. He said that the farmers who brought the green revolution in India should ensure that Andhra Pradesh remains as the rice bowl of the country. Speaking on the occasion, PCC President Botcha Satyanarayana said that the State Government, under the guidance of UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi, would implement welfare programmes meant for the farmers through the Eruvaaka programme.
