Telangana Gets Its Space In Naidu’s Speech at Mahanadu
Visakhapatnam: The inaugural speech of the Telugu Desam supremo Nara Chandrababu Naidu at Mahanadu on Saturday sounded boastful with regard to the development of Telangana, once a part of United Andhra Pradesh. Stating that Hyderabad was generating a huge income that could be seen nowhere, he said it was because of the foundation their party laid when it was in power. The construction of Cyberabad, the laying of outer ring road, the building of airport and educational institutions were the initiatives that the party took, he added.
“I was ridiculed when I took initiatives to construct High Tech City in Hyderabad. Now Hyderabad has turned into a knowledge society,” he told the delegates of the Mahanadu.
As for irrigation projects in Telangana, he stated that his government accorded priority to Madhavareddy Lift Irrigation and completed it on time. “We have given priority to all the projects including Devadula, Kalwakurthi, Nettempadu, Koyala Sagar and Bheema projects,” he asserted. In Telangana and Rayalaseema we set up an elementary school in every kilometer area, an upper primary school in 3 km distance, a high school in 5km periphery, a junior college in every mandal, an engineering college in each revenue division and a medical college in each district. Education saw an enormous development in Telangana and Andhra regions because of their efforts, he stated.
He criticized the Congress party for bifurcating the State irrationally and said he was not against any such decision. But it was his feeling that people of any region should not be meted out injustice. Saying that Mahanadu held in Hyderabad to which he attended was a success, he attributed it to the Telangana TDP leaders and cadres.
