Coinciding with the birthday of Sonia Gandhi, who played a crucial role in the state’s formation, he urged every Telangana citizen to take pride in their identity as part of this vibrant community.

    Reflecting on the pre-election commitments made by the Congress party, MLA Shankar expressed pride in the prompt realization of two guarantees under the leadership of state Chief Minister Revanth Reddy. The Mahalakshmi Scheme, unveiled as a birthday tribute to Soniamma, is designed to address the needs of lower and middle-class women, young women, and students in Telangana.

This new initiative, under Chief Minister Revanth Reddy’s guidance, involves a substantial increase in the limit of the Arogyashri scheme—now extended to Rs 10 lakh.
