"Telangana government is not here to make fake promises. To provide better governance, taxes should be increased. For this property taxes and power tariffs should be increased. For Dalits and tribals, there would be no hike. Corruption will not be tolerated in any field. All government officials should do their duties with perfection. Telangana government will initiate legal action against them if the employees are not bound to their duties.
