Minister Talasani Srinivas Yadav held a press meet. Faulting congress party leaders' comments, he said Telangana govt has purchased the lands awarded to the poor in Gadwal Jogulamba district. He reminded that the land documents were handed over to the poor through congress MLA Sampath Kumar. He claimed that congress never gave fertile lands to the poor except the barren land. He also stated that Telangana govt has provided seeds for fisheries, sheep, agricultural investments to the farmers, and 12% reservations to weaker sections which never happened during congress rule.
