TS Formation Day: KCR calls Telangana the number one state in country
On Telangana’s formation day, Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao Saturday said the state has achieved unmatched development in the last four years.
Telangana is celebrating the state formation day today and the celebrations are being held at Parade Ground in Secunderabad.
Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao on the occasion, paid tribute to Telangana martyrs. He unveiled the National Flag at Parade Grounds and received Honorary Salutation from TS police.
Telangana became the 29th state of India after it was carved out of Andhra Pradesh in 2014. KCR who is also the first chief minister of the state is expected to launch a slew of schemes on Saturday to mark the fourth anniversary of the state.
Speaking at the occasion, KCR congratulated the people of Telangana on the occasion of Telangana Formation day. He said that the dream of Telangana became possible after several sacrifices.
KCR said, “Special welfare and development programs have been implemented after the separate state came into existence.
Many of the schemes brought into practice were not even part of TRS’ election manifesto but a stray idea that has benefitted the people of the state. The government has focused on boosting the agriculture sector by introducing schemes like Mission Kakatiya to desilt irrigation tanks with a view to increasing their storage capacity.
Another major achievement of the TRS government has been providing 24×7 uninterrupted free power supply to the agriculture sector. There has also been an increase in GDP growth rate and industrial development over the last four years. The youngest state has surpassed the average of all other states in the increase of per person consumption of power, progress in service sector and an upsurge in IT exports.
Also said the state has achieved unmatched development in the last four years. He added that it is not a pioneer in development with “historic and revolutionary” schemes.
