He appealed to state government to honour its promise of releasing 28 TMC water from Sri Ram Sagar Project to Lower Manair Dam in Karimnagar to meet the agriculture needs of farmers.

Reacting on MLC elections, he said though 60 Telangana Congress representing the Assembly, they have failed to give one seat to any Telangana candidate. “This only proves their levels of commitment to Telangana,” Mr Rajender said.
