Telangana CM K Chandrasekhar Rao claimed the bold decision taken by him to create 21 new districts after the formation of state has paid off. He says small districts will guarantee better administration and delivery of services to the people. 'I had urged NT Rama Rao to create Siddipet district in the 80s itself. However, It didn't materialize for some reason,' informs the TRS Chief.

KCR declared Revenue Growth of Telangana is around 22 Percent, which is the highest in the country. He didn't hesitate to say Telangana is in this position Today because of the bifurcation.

TRS Supremo proudly claims his Government has been spending Rs 40,000 crore per year on welfare schemes. He exuded confidence that drought can't be seen in Telangana if the Irrigation Projects taken up by the Government yield results.

For some reason, AP Government isn't willing to go for delimitation of the Districts. May be, The revenue deficit state can't provide the necessary funds and infrastructure for such a massive exercise.
