Telangana Minister for Finance, Eetala Rajender, addressed a press meet after presenting the state budget 2018-19. He said that this time they had allotted special funds for repairs to roads, right from Panchayat level. For the first time in the country, Telangana government has allocated for farm investments for both the crops. Even for minorities, the government has made allocations to the tune of Rs. 2,000 crores, like in no other state, he said. Minorities are used only for votes and forgotten when the time comes to do something for them, in other states, he said.
