B. Chandrashekhar, R. Avadhani report:

Telangana Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao went all out in praising the Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his Government's two-year rule terming it as "corruption free".

In his brief speech in chaste Hindi after the inauguration of Mission Bhagiratha project at this village in Chief Minister's Gajwel Assembly constituency, Mr. Rao said for the first time in the country, Mr. Modi is credited with providing corruption free governance.

Thanking the Prime Minister for accepting the Telangana Government's request to inaugurate the Mission Bhagiratha project and laying foundation stone for several projects, the Chief Minister said he wanted the love and affection of Mr. Modi for the State. "I will not ask you for Rs. 50,000 crore or 1 lakh crore for development," he said adding that his only dream was to see the long lasting love and affection of Mr. Modi.

Not stopping at that, Mr. Rao put on record the helping hand given by various Union Ministries. In particular, he spoke about how Mr. Venkaiah Naidu, Piyush Goyal and Mr. Suresh Prabhu through their Ministries had helped the State on various issues.

Mr. Rao urged the Prime Minister to announce one national project, support the Government Mission Kakatiya scheme to revive irrigation tanks, All-India medical institute and ITIR zone.
