Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao today thanked the voters of Nagarjuna Sagar for "blessing" the TRS and helping its candidate for the by-election, Nomula Bhagat, win the seat with a huge majority.
He said that as per the policy of the pink party, the promises made during the electioneering would be fulfilled soon, and assured the people of the region that he would begin a tour of the constituency to start the process of resolving the problems of the locals.
"The Lift Irrigation Schemes sanctioned in Devarakonda, Nagarjuna Sagar, Miryalguda, Huzurnagar and Kodad will be completed on a priority so that the residents living in the areas can access clean water easily. I assure you that the immense faith you have placed in the TRS government's development and welfare programs will not go to waste. I am overwhelmed by the support you have shown us despite the vicious smear campaigns of those with vested interests," the CM added.
The CM said that the TRS would "rededicate" itself and work with "doubled vigour" to do justice to the support the party had received.
He then congratulated Nomula Bhagat on his win, and suggested that the newly elected MLA utilise this opportunity to serve the people and lay a strong foundation for a productive political career. He also thanked the TRS leaders, and workers for working towards Bhagat's win.
The TRS supremo had himself gotten involved in the TRS' campaign - though he usually keeps away from by-election campaigns, he addressed a massive rally in Halia
in an effort to highlight the attributes of his party and its candidate.
At the meeting, KCR was seen promising the tribals of the region, a sizeable section of the population, that he would personally oversee the resolution of the podu land problems across the state by setting up Praja Darbars. He also said that the process would first be carried out in Nalgonda.
Further, the party had assigned one legislator and a team of activists to each mandal in the constituency. Prominent leaders like Talasani Srinivas Yadav and Mohammed Mahmood Ali had been in the region, and had led the party's unceasing attacks
on Jana Reddy, the Congress veteran who was also contesting for the seat.
