"The Telangana community has experienced the worst conditions and we have suffered a lot due to many problems. Earlier when Narasimha was the Energy minister. I called him he said he had electricity problems. All of Aleru is a drought area. No matter how many transformers were brought in, there was no profit," he said.

It has been promised to provide this to all categories and apply to BCs and ABCs. We have been doing things in order, Rs. 70 lakh crore has been allotted.

He said that anything is possible if you have the courage, for good to happen to all, it is possible only with good leadership. KCR expressed that we will win next time too. He said that the Dalit Bandhu scheme was delayed due to corona.
