Telangana chief minister K Chandrashekar Rao arrived to a tumultuous reception in his assembly constituency Gajwel in Medak district. KCR said a ‘horticulture hub’ would be created within a radius of 50 km of Hyderabad. This would include places like Gajwel, where vegetables are cultivated, Choutuppal in Nalgonda and places in Ranga Reddy and Mahbubnagar districts.
KCR showered sops on the people of Gajwel. He said in the next three years, 2-3 lakh acres of agriculture land would be irrigated in his constituency and steps would be taken to bring Godavari water for the purpose.
A detailed plan would be prepared for sup plying drinking water for Gajwel. An outer ring road planned for Gajwel would also be on the agenda, he said. The ring-road would be of four-to-six lanes and have butterfly lighting system. Rao, who expressed his gratitude to the people of Gajwel for electing him though he had addressed only two meetings there, said he would forever be indebted to them.
KCR said, “Take this assurance from me. If you step on a thorn, I will remove it with my teeth. A PA will be available at my house only for the people of Gajwel and I will respond to their grievances. I will be available for you day and night. Since Gajwel is close to Hyderabad, I chose to contest from here so that I could visit this place more frequently. I will develop Gajwel into a model constituency. In four years time, what appears like a forest will be like a city when I land in a helicopter here.”
