Ahead of Telangana elections, a picture of N T Rama Rao touring Adilabad district way back in1982 is trending. This picture was taken after NTR formed Telugu Desam party. The picture reminds us the days when NTR was devoting his time listening to people's woes and thereby he won a significant amount of BC votes in the state by abolishing the Patel-Patwari system. TDP founder fought for women empowerment and also strived for poor people. It is well known that a number of schemes were focussed during his government on uplifting Scheduled Castes, Scheduled Tribes and Backward Classes, and all other poorer sections of people.
