This is the first paddy procurement centre in the erstwhile Warangal district. Speaking on the occasion, he said that Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao has always thought about farmers.

Jangaon district collector Ch Shivalingaiah and additional collector Bhaskar Rao were among others present.
In another development, the minister said that the Mana Ooru-Mana Badi programme, aimed at strengthening the infrastructure in schools, will bring in a phenomenal change in education. Launching developmental works with an estimated cost of Rs 1 crore at Raiparthy as part of the Mana Ooru Mana Badi programme on Friday, he appealed to people to send their wards to State-run schools only. "No more people should avail loans for their children's education," he said.
Stating that the government was committed to improve the infrastructural facilities under the programme, the State-run school in Kondur will soon get toilets, electricity supply, digital classes, dining hall etc.
Errabelli said that the State was giving utmost priority to health, education and welfare. The welfare schemes implemented in Telangana have become beacons for the other States in the country, he said. The initiatives such as Mission Bhagiratha, Aasara pensions, Rythu Bandhu, 24-hour free power supply and Kaleshwaram Lift Irrigation Project (KLIP) etc started by the government are role models in the country, he added.
