Speaking on the occasion, the minister said the TRS government was making efforts to develop infrastructure which could attract industries and provide employment to the youth of the minerals rich Khamma district. He hit out at the Opposition parties saying that they were unable to digest the fact that the TRS government was working for the people’s welfare.
