Speaking at the TRS' preparatory meeting for the ensuing election to Warangal-Khammam-Nalgonda Graduates Constituency at Kothaguda in Mahabubabad district on Saturday, she said that Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao will soon focus on podu land issue.
She said that the government will provide financial assistance under Rythu Bandhu to podu farmers also. "After the budget, the government has decided to bear the expenditure for the construction of double bedroom houses for the poor, who have own land," Rathod said. Stating that the TRS government has been implementing several welfare and developmental programmes, she told the cadres to reach out to the people to ensure the victory of party candidate for Graduates Constituency, Palla Rajeshwar Reddy.
