Telangana has become an agriculture-based state thanks to Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao, according to Minister for Panchayat Raj and Rural Development Errabelli Dayakar Rao. Speaking at the Farmers Day celebration on Saturday, Errabelli praised KCR’s efforts for the welfare of farmers. He added that KCR had turned agriculture into a lucrative industry in Telangana by creating irrigation facilities and implementing Rythu Bandhu, Rythu Bima, 24-hour free power supply, crop loan waivers, and paddy procurement. Errabelli also noted that the commissioning of the Kaleshwaram Lift Irrigation Project had increased groundwater levels in the region.
The ceremony was part of the decennial fete of Telangana Formation Day at several places in the Warangal district. Legislative Council deputy chairman Banda Prakash said that the state had made rapid progress in fulfilling people’s aspirations for water, funds, and employment. The celebrations were attended by several officials, including Warangal ZP chairperson Gandra Jyothy, MLAs Nannapuneni Narender, Aroori Ramesh, Commissioner of Police A V Ranganath, Warangal district collector P Pravinya, Enumamula market yard chairperson Bhagyalaxmi, and Ravinder Reddy of Chamber of Commerce.
In a separate event, Chief Whip D Vinay Bhaskar participated in the Farmers Day celebrations at Kadipikonda Rythu Vedika. Vinay noted that Telangana was previously a drought-prone region before becoming the rice bowl of the country. The government ensured irrigation facilities for one crore acres in the last nine years and provided several welfare schemes for farmers. In another celebration, Rythu Bandhu Samithi president and MLC Palla Rajeshwar Reddy and Hanamkonda District Collector Sikta Patnaik participated in the festivities at Rayagudem village under Dharmasagar mandal in Hanumakonda district. Minister Errabelli Dayakar Rao also joined the celebrations later.
