With voting for elections in Telangana less than 10 days away, many politicians are having a field day interacting with voters.
Senior Congress leader V Hanumantha Rao (VHR), who is contesting from Amberpet Assembly constituency, campaigned in the Nallakunta segment on Sunday. He along with other leaders and party workers took out a padayatra in the by-lanes of New Nallakunta. He greeted the residents of colonies and sought their support in the upcoming polls.
VHR interacted with the passersby and enquired about the problems they are facing. He promised to solve all the issues, if elected. He spent most of his time near basthis at Nallakunta Railway Bridge. The squatters spoke about the long pending issue of relocation and stated that they are against it as relocation hurts their livelihood. Hanumantha Rao promised to look into the issue.
Later, he undertook door-to-door campaigning; interacted with women voters, helped voters in a few of their daily chores and sought their support. He met women who were travelling by autos and enquired about their safety. The women requested more security while using public transport in the night.
