KCR will soon distribute cheques and pattedar passbooks, as part of the historic and game-changing Rythu Bandhu scheme, at an impressive programme organised between Salapalli-Indiranagar in Huzurabad constituency of Karimnagar district. Over a lakh people have attended the meeting. Finance Minister Etela Rajender has personally monitored the arrangements. In his welcome speech, Etela made it clear that the welfare schemes being launched in the state for farmers are not for seats or votes. It is in due recognition of their genuine needs, he said.
