Telangana produces more than 50% of India’s paddy, said CM KCR
The Chief Minister declared that after the people gave their approval, they should give the Congress a lesson.
Hyderabad: Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao said on Monday that Telangana is at the top of the nation in terms of a number of development metrics and that the state has overtaken Punjab in terms of paddy output.
In his speech to officials during the opening of the new integrated district collectorate building in Gadwal, he claimed that Telangana has the highest per capita income among the nation’s major states.
According to him, Telangana is also the top state for open defecation free (ODF) Plus, supplying drinking water, and electrical power consumption per capita.
Rao, better known as KCR, said that the state is making quick development and that supportive government is being followed.
He stated that officials and representatives of the public worked hard to make progress and urged the government to keep up the excellent job.
“The Green Revolution originally took place in Punjab. For the past 50 years, they have produced more paddy than anybody else. Telangana has already surpassed Punjab to take the top spot for paddy output, he said.
This summer, paddy was grown on 94 lakh acres over all of India. 56.40 lakh acres of that total were planted in cultivation in Telangana alone. More than half (of the total in India),” KCR said.
Telangana is making progress in the industrial and information technology sectors in addition to agricultural and welfare, he said.
Later, when addressing to a crowd in Gadwal, he said that by putting in place a variety of welfare programmes, the state government was taking care of every aspect of society.
He also specified the achievements and welfare programmes of his administration, including as irrigation campaigns, free electricity for farmers, the “Rythu Bandhu” scheme of investment support for farmers, and “Mission Bhagiratha” for a supply of drinking water.
Previously, individuals from Gadwal and other locations would move for job, but today, he claimed, people from other states, such as Kurnool in nearby Andhra Pradesh, Raichur in Karnataka, Bihar, and Jharkhand, are moving to Telangana for work.
While Telangana has a constant supply of electricity, Rao pointed out that bordering AP, which is approximately 20 miles (32 km) from Gadwal, does not.
He asked audience members to raise their hands if they agreed with the Congress’ statement that it would end the BRS government’s “Dharani” integrated land records management system.
The Chief Minister declared that people should teach the Congress a lesson after they had approved the proposal.
If the welfare measures, such as the steady supply of power and Rythu Bandhu, are to continue, he pleaded with the crowd for the protection of BRS.
