The Minister of Information, Civil Relations, Mines, and Underground Resources, Patnam Mahender Reddy, praised Telangana’s development and said it is advancing faster than any other state in the country. He credited the IT Minister, K T Rama Rao, for transforming the Shabad area into an industrial powerhouse. Reddy laid the foundation stone for a bridge project in Komarabanda village, Shabad mandal, which is funded with Rs 5 crore. This project will improve connectivity and support further development in the region.
During his speech, Reddy compared Telangana’s initiatives with those of other states, particularly those ruled by Congress and BJP. He highlighted Telangana’s “Dalit Bandhu” program, loan waivers for farmers, investment assistance, opportunities for women, and schemes like “Kalyan Lakshmi” that are unique to Telangana. He criticized opposition parties for misleading the public and opposing initiatives like “Dharani” because they can’t match Telangana’s progress.
Reddy also announced plans for Ranga Reddy district’s development, describing it as “unimaginable.” He allocated substantial funds of Rs 124 crore for roads and Rs 52 crore for the Chevella constituency’s bridge projects.
Chevella MP Ranjith Reddy defended the state government’s schemes against criticism from Congress and BJP leaders. He challenged them to showcase similar welfare programs in their states and urged the BJP government at the Centre to demonstrate its contributions to Telangana.
Chevella MLA Kale Yadayah expressed confidence in public support for development initiatives and warned against unnecessary disputes related to the allocation of “Dalit Bandhu” benefits.
Zilla Parishad Chairperson Anita Harinath Reddy, Shabad ZPTC Patnam Avinash Reddy, and MPP Prashanthi Mahender Reddy, who reaffirmed the local leadership’s commitment to the state’s progress, were also present at the event.
