KARIMNAGAR: All development activities being implemented in poll-bound Huzurabad Assembly constituency were routine processes and meant to ensure the wellbeing of people, said animal husbandry minister Talasani Srinivas Yadav, adding that no government took up welfare schemes keeping elections in view.
During his visit to Huzurabad constituency, Srinivas Yadav on Monday released fish seed into a lake in Singapur village of Huzurabad mandal in Karimnagar district.
Addressing a meeting on the occasion, the minister said after the formation of Telangana, the state government was striving hard to strengthen all sections of people in rural areas. To make villages economically strong, Chief Minister K. Chandrashekar Rao introduced several schemes and was implementing them perfectly, he said.
Srinivas Yadav reminded that distribution of fish seed programmes was done every year apart from providing vehicles and fishing nets by the fisheries department to the fishermen community.
The minister asked if any other political leader came to lakes in their villages, and talked about creating water wealth by growing fish and prawns in lakes and tanks and whether they bothered about the welfare of fishermen community, other than Telangana Rashtra Samiti (TRS) leaders.
After the completion of Kaleshwaram and Konda Pochamma project, the state government had taken up distribution of fish seed and distributed around 93 crore fish seed and 23 crore prawns seed to fishermen community till date, he informed.
If people extended their cooperation to the person whom the government was supporting, then further development of that region would take place, said the minister, urging the people of Huzurabad constituency to support the TRS candidate Gellu Srinivas Yadav in the upcoming Huzurabad by-polls.
Karimnagar zilla parishad chairperson K. Vijaya, MLA V. Satish, RDO Ch. Ravinder Reddy and P. Lakshman were among those who were present.
