Telangana Chief Minister A Revanth Reddy announced on Wednesday that the two electoral promises made by the ruling Congress, giving women LPG cylinders for Rs 500 and giving the 200 units of free power to poor would be implemented in a week.

The statement from the chief minister came while addressing a public gathering following the ceremonial groundbreaking of development projects valued at Rs 4,369 crores in his Assembly constituency of Kodangal. CM Reddy also declared that the Congress government would shortly carry out its election-year pledge to waive a Rs 2 lakh farm debt.

Notably, the state government has already implemented free travel for women in state-rum RTC buses and a health scheme of Rs 10 lakh for the poor, out of the six poll guarantees of Congress, he said.

In the meantime, Revanth Reddy attacked the opposition BRS and BJP for disappointing the people of the undivided

Mahabubnagar district over irrigation projects, laying the stage for a heated campaign for the next Lok Sabha elections. Reddy specifically targeted former Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao (KCR) for not fulfilling promises related to the Palamuru-Ranga Reddy lift irrigation project despite a hefty investment of Rs 27,000 crore.

Here's the list of ‘six poll guarantees’ made by ruling party in Assembly Elections, which is likely to make major impact on upcoming Lok Sabha Elections 2024.
