Nirmal: Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao on Sunday made a special appeal to young and educated voters to think carefully about who they will vote for in this election.
He also said he was going to bring in a new Revenue Act that will benefit landowners, and issue exclusive land deed titles to landowners. He said his government wants to spend Rs 30 lakh crore over the next 10 years on development of the state.
Mr Rao was addressing a public meeting at Nirmal as part of the election campaign for the TRS candidate, Mr Godam Nagesh.
It is said that Mr Rao has changed his line after party candidates were defeated in the MLC teachers and graduates constituencies in the state.
Mr Rao enumerated the welfare schemes and development being implemented in the state and touched upon establishing a Federal Front with a secular ideology to change the direction of the country towards development.
He criticised the BJP for its double standards. BJP national leaders had promised to establish a Turmeric Board if they were voted to power. The TRS has been demanding the same for the last five years, without success. He questioned the BJP’s raising the Pakistan issue just before the elections.
The Central government has also failed to give a minimum support price (MSP) for crops and now the farmers of Nizamabad are facing the same problem of low prices for red jowar, he said.
Increasing MSP for crops is in the hands of the Central government, he said, but they have been neglecting it. The Federal Front will give a good MSP if it comes to power.
Mr Rao said his government would make Adilabad into another Kashmir by increasing irrigation and added that the administration was decentralised by creating the new districts of Nirmal, Asifabad and Mancherial.
The Chief Minister also said his government would provide all benefits to farmers for the Podu lands on the lines of general farmers and promised to apply Rythu Bandhu, Rythu Bheema, free electricity and water to the Podu farmers.
He was committed to inclusive growth and the development of all communities and groups in the state, Mr Rao declared.
