Will focus on urban areas after 2019, says KTR

Hyderabad: Minister for Municipal Administration and Urban Development (MA&UD) KT Rama Rao on Sunday said the TRS party’s number one priority after winning the 2019 election will be to improve urban infrastructure in Telangana, indicating a shift in policy after the government’s sharp focus on agriculture and rural economy in the first term.

The MA&UD Minister went live on Twitter for close to two hours, and while replying to a query, said that improving urban infrastructure will be the top priority not only in Hyderabad but in the entire State of Telangana.

Replying to a question from a Twitter follower on who will be the Chief Minister in 2019, the Minister was emphatic in saying it would be K Chandrashekhar Rao. This is for the second time that Rao interacted with the public on the social media platform Twitter after last December’s live session.

During Sunday’s interaction, Rao chose a wide a range of questions, which varied from developmental activities related to various sectors in the State to his personal tastes and preferences.
