He told officials: “We have made a stable journey and were consistent in achieving a separate state. Similarly, we have implemented a slew of social welfare schemes and measures successfully after attaining power. We have overcome severe issues like those of drinking water, power and irrigation water.”

“We want development of villages to be of top priority. We have brought in a strong act. Village development is taking place. We are going to see a positive change in the villages in three months,” the Chief Minister said.

He said the government had decided to bring in qualitative changes as gratitude to the people for giving the party a landslide victory.

He said, “The Telangana New Municipal Act should be brought in to eradicate corruption. This time around, people expect best practices and best policies from the government. People should benefit from the best policies.”

The Chief Minister instructed the officials concerned to organise an orientation-training programme for municipal commissioners to create awareness about the new Act.
