Many educational and health institutions were sanctioned to the State. Whatever is needed to be done for Telangana, the Modi government would do, he added.

He further said under the Deen Dayal Upadhyay Vistarak Yojna, the party would be expanded even at places where BJP is not strong. ''The way in which I am touring Nalgonda for three days, about 4 lakh active workers of the party will be visiting villages explaining people about the Modi government at the Centre,'' said Shah.
The BJP chief visited different houses in the village and interacted with the families knowing about their problems. He participated in the community lunch with the villagers.
