The Chief Minister called attention to various initiatives undertaken by the BRS government, including the increase in pension amounts, the successful Kanti Velugu program benefiting 3 crore people, and the Amma Odi scheme providing financial support for newborns. He responded to criticism from Congress leaders regarding Rythu Bandhu and electricity issues, urging the public not to be swayed by such statements.
CM KCR underscored the growth in the field of education, pointing out the establishment of residential schools converted into residential colleges.
