KCR moots legal action against those making baseless allegations

Hyderabad, Apr 21 (UNI) The annual plenary of the ruling Telangana Rashtra Samiti came to a close at Kompally near here this evening with a call by TRS supremo and Chief Minister K.Chandrasekhar Rao to ministers to take to legal recourse against those making baseless allegations.
A major portion of Mr.Rao's inaugural and valedictory addresses to the plenary dwelt on the government's initiatives to better the lot of the farmers who he said will be the king in the TRS-ruled state.
He said effective steps would be taken to implement the much-applauded government decision to provide fertilizers to farmers free of cost and also listed out other schemes for their benefit like Rs.4,000 input subsidy and formation of farmers societies for which Rs 500 crore would be allotted in the next budget.
Mr.Rao said that a special session of the state Legislative Assembly would be
convened soon after the massive public meeting in connection with the TRS formation day at Warangal on April 27.
The special session was being called to adopt a bill seeking to prohibit sale and distribution of adulterated seeds.
Incidentally,this is for the first time that the plenary and public meeting was taking place on different dates and venues.The public meeting coinciding with the party's formation day will be held at Warangal on April 27.
Mr.Rao also suggested linking of rural employment guarantee schemes with agriculture.
The highlight of the plenary was the unanimous election of Mr.Rao as the TRS President for the eighth time.
About 15,000 delegates including ministers, MPs, legislators attended the plenary held on a sprawling and tastefully decorated 60 acre enclosure comprising passive pandals and huge dais for the Chief Minister and other VIPs.
Decorative arches made by Tamil nadu artisans were erected near the venue.
The plenary passed seven resolutions on different issues including irrigation and welfare schemes.
