He told this while distributing essential commodities and Eid-ul-Fitr kits to the poor among Muslims in different villages of Mahabubabad and Jangaon districts on Wednesday.
On the occasion he conveyed his greetings to the Muslims on the ensuing Eid-ul-Fitr. Saying that God is one’ Dayakar Rao said that he was winning elections consecutively with the blessings of all the Gods.
