He did not even refer to the family rule which was castigated by the other speakers. He listed the number of schemes that the Centre has been implementing in Telangana for its development. He promised that one of the four huge textile parks will come up in Telangana. Prime Minister Modi spoke of outer ring road that is going to come up and the connectivity of Telangana. He said Hyderabad would be developed as a knowledge hub.
