KCR said two leaders should also take responsibility from the government in every assembly constituency. He called for connecting with people through programmes like Palle Nidra (Night halt in villages).

Stating that in some villages, government lands are lying idle, he asked the party leaders to submit the details of such lands with survey numbers to his office. Suitable lands will be distributed to the poor to construct the houses immediately.

He announced that the government will purchase all crops including maize and sorghum like in the past.
KCR said that the state government is implementing an action plan to sustain agriculture and the welfare of farmers.
He listed out the achievements made by Telangana during the last nine years. The CM claimed that investments are flooding the state.
He pointed out that Andhra Pradesh’s per capita income of Rs 2,19,518 is Rs 1,00,000 less than Telangana’s per capita income. The per capita income of 16 to 17 states is much less than this.
The state registered surprising growth in every sector like electricity, roads, paddy procurement, agriculture, livestock, fisheries.
KCR said that Telangana also tops in per capita electricity consumption.
He slammed the Maharashtra government saying it has no vision.
“Maharashtra government says that it will go bankrupt if it implements Telangana schemes. The Telangana state implemented the schemes successfully without going bankrupt,”. He said and claimed that people of Maharashtra are visiting Telangana to see the progress of the state.
