Nizamabad: The TRS came out in support of party candidate and MP K. Kavitha, who is facing nearly 180 farmers who are contesting to protest against low turmeric and red jowar prices. The party said Ms Kavitha had strived hard to set up a turmeric board in Nizamabad and had garnered the support of the Chief Ministers of Maharashtra, Kerala and Assam but the Centre had not agreed to it.
Ms Kavitha, minister V. Prashanth Reddy, Nizamabad Urban MLA Bigala Ganesh Gupta, MLC V.G. Goud and others addressed a joint press meeting in Nizamabad on Tuesday after conducting a huge public meeting at Dharna Chowk to defend her work.
Ms Kavitha said she would work hard for comprehensive development of Nizamabad district. Industries will be set up in the district to provide employment to youth, she said. Building an airport and the reopening of Nizam Deccan Sugars were her top priorities, she said. Work on the Lakkampally Special Economic Zone works will be completed soon, she added.
“The people of Nizamabad district voted for me in the last elections and I am hopeful they would extend the same support to me this time also,” Ms Kavitha said. She said her election promises of Peddapally-Nizamabad railway completion, drinking water for every household and stabilization of 2 lakh acres under Nizamsagar project had been fulfilled.
Ms Kavitha said women belonging to self-help groups would be provided financial inclusion. “We will develop Nizamabad district in all fields,” she said. She would work for 12 per cent reservations for Muslims.
“If people voted for the TRS with 16 MPs, we will play key role at Centre for the development of Telangana state and Nizamabad district,” she said.
