In a controversial move ahead of the upcoming polls, Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao (KCR) announced the government's intention of establishing a dedicated information technology (IT) park near Hyderabad for minority youth.
However, speaking at a rally in Maheshwaram, KCR emphasised the state's inclusive approach, treating both Hindus and Muslims as equal partners in development, reported Hindustan Times.
Highlighting his government's past initiatives, including providing pensions and opening residential schools for Muslim students, KCR reassured voters of the state's secular principles.
He unveiled plans for the proposed IT park, designed to empower minority youths in the field of technology and enhance employment opportunities.
KCR took pride in Telangana's peaceful environment, asserting that the state had experienced significant development in the decade since its formation.
He compared his government's achievements with the Congress, underlining the substantial investment of Rs 12,000 crore in minority development during the past 10 years.
The Chief Minister also addressed concerns raised by the opposition, particularly the Congress, and pledged to continue popular schemes like 'Rythu Bandhu,' an investment support initiative for farmers.
KCR urged voters to consider the progress made under his leadership and make an informed decision that would shape the future of the state for the next five years.
