BRS president and chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao has appealed to people to be cautious while casting a vote. The vote decides the fate of the people. “Since you have a golden knife, you cannot test it by cutting your neck. So, you have to be careful while exercising it. Do not get misguided by unscrupulous parties and leaders,” he told the large gathering that turned up at the medical college grounds in Jangaon town on Monday.
Once dry and drought hit the region Jangaon and its surrounding mandals have now witnessed significant change. It became the largest producer of paddy due to the vision and commitment of the state government in separate Telangana. Assuring farmers of enough irrigation water, Mr KCR said the Devadula project is exclusively dedicated to the erstwhile Warangal and some pending works would be completed to bring it to its full potential. The Mallannasagar reservoir is over the Jangaon. The Jangaon and its surroundings are now drought-proof. Even during peak summer, this district will have enough water for irrigation and drinking.
Irrespective of caste and creed, this BRS government has been working relentlessly for the empowerment of people. This has ensured peace and tranquillity in the state. There has been not a single incident of communal violence since BRS assumed power. Welfare and development have been beneficial to every section of society and are not limited to one caste or religion.
“Now some people and parties are coming to people in the wake of elections. I urge you not to believe in them and get misled by them,” he said. During the past decade, the Telangana state has witnessed steady progress and there was investment of crores of rupees. Over 25 lakh youth got jobs in IT and IT-related fields.
Be it irrigation or any other sector, the Telangana state is ahead of all other states in the country. If this progress and peace is to be continued, people should bless this government and elect it with a great majority. The Congress leaders who are making tall promises are not implementing the same in the state they are ruling now. In Karnataka, the fields are getting dried and farmers are coming onto the roads for want of electricity and water. Let us not slip our state into such a sorry state.
“Being a farmer myself, I sat down and worked for two to three years to devise the Dharani portal. It removes the power over land to government officials. It gives sole power to farmers only. Not even the chief minister can alter your land record now,” he explained. However, the Congress leaders say they will scrap the system. Again corruption and nepotism will come back and throw the genuine farmers into distress. Let us not allow them to do it. “You reject such Congress party and its leaders. If you are complacent while voting, bad days will befall us. Be careful,” Mr KCR told the thousands of people who filled the medical college grounds.
Party candidate Palla Rajeshwar Reddy, ministers Errabelli Dayakar Rao and Satyavathi Rathod, MLA Yadagiri Reddy and others were present. Senior politician and former minister Mr Ponnala Laxmaiaih formally joined the BRS party at the meeting.
