He further added, "Amit Shah will be visiting Telangana at least once a month, starting from August or September.
Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) government is not implementing the Centre welfare schemes for the poor section of the state. The BJP workers will be interacting with the villagers in Telangana and make sure that these schemes are being implemented properly; this will be monitored by the
Union Ministers, as told by Laxman.
"Whenever Amit Shah visits Telangana, Kalvakuntla Taraka Rama Rao tweets absurd tweets about him. He even copied the water project idea from Gujarat state and presented it as a new water project idea in Telangana, naming it as Mission Bhagiratha," he added.
