KCR gave a strong reply to comments made by Congress legislator, Mallu Bhatti Vikramarka, regarding promises made in manifesto. Why the farmers suffered is because the previous Congress governments failed to take up welfare measures, he said. He recalled how the government had to appoint village officials to carry out the welfare programmes. He revealed that besides Kanti Velugu, free health monitoring schemes will be carried out throughout the state. Not just the listed items on manifesto, but even those they come across will be resolved, KCR added.
