Telugu Desam Party (TDP) president N. Chandrababu Naidu on Thursday justified his offer of sops and subsidies to various sections of people saying such policies were an integral part of a welfare State.

“Even America has many social security schemes,” he pointed out while interacting with youth at a public meeting at Koratikal village in mamda mandal as part of his ongoing Vasthunna Mee Kosam padayatra in Adilabad district.

“Waiver of crop loans was essential to provide relief to the beleaguered farmer community in the State. I will also allocate Rs. 10,000 crore for purchase of lands to the backward communities if I come back to power,” Mr. Naidu said.
