TRS deputy floor leader in the Assembly T. Harish Rao on Thursday alleged bias of the State administration towards Telangana region in the naming of drought-affected mandals.

Addressing party meetings in Narketpalli, Nakrekal and Ramannapet, he charged the government with naming only a few mandals in Telangana as drought-affected although the ground reality is different. This, Mr. Rao alleged, is part of the government’s policy of discriminating against the region. A large number of activists from other parties joined the TRS in the presence of Mr. Rao. The mandals declared as drough-hit in Nalgonda are - Nampally, Marriguda, Gurrampode, P.A .Pally, Chandampet, Devarakonda, Munugode, Chintapally, Yadagirigutta, Chandur and Peddavura.
