Munagala (Suryapet): The innovative concept of Rythu Vedikas by Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao would revolutionise the agricultural sector and unite the farmers, said Energy Minister G Jagadish Reddy. The Minister along with MLA Bollam Mallaiah Yadav inaugurated a Rythu Vedika constructed in Munagala cluster in Kodad constituency on Wednesday.
