Reiterating that his party will come back to power in Telangana state after the ensuing Assembly elections, Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao said they would sweep the polls. Launching the ninth phase of the Haritha Haram programme at Thummaluru in Ranga Reddy district on Monday, he said The BRS government has made promises and delivered them. Even those not promised were delivered.
The State government achieved many milestones and now Telangana is known all over the world for its unique development and welfare programmes.
Referring to the Haritha Haram programme, he said the state government so far planted 273 crore saplings and efforts are on to plant another two crore trees. “When I mentioned the Haritha Haram in Assembly, the Congress leaders mocked the plan. Now the results are before you to see,” Mr Chandrashekhar Rao said. Telangana stands at third in terms of massive plantation drive after China and Brazil, he pointed out.
The agriculture sector got top priority from the BRS government which strengthened farmers by introducing many welfare schemes besides free power and water. Now the state government is focusing on the establishment of food processing units in every district across the state and Rs. 2,000 crore has been set aside for the purpose. Modernisation of rice mills is being considered and talks with a Japanese firm are underway. The rice millers will come to farmers to buy their produce and not the other way which is in vogue now.
