Siddipet MLA and former minister T Harish Rao is touring his constituency. This afternoon, he paid a surprise visit to Bhojanmrutha canteen for the poor at Siddipet. He joined the queue to have food with those who came there and also had the food along with them.
Bhojanmrutha canteen is being run by the government to provide food to the poor at an affordable price. “We are planning to open few more in Siddipet town,” Harish Rao announced. While having the food, Harish Rao interacted with the locals to find their problems if any.
In the Telangana Assembly Elections held in December last year, Harish Rao retained his Siddipet seat by securing a staggering 1,20,650 lakh votes majority. His nearest rival from the Telangana Jana Samithi could not even manage 10% of Harish Rao’s total.
Harish Rao has been winning the Siddipet assembly seat consecutively since 2004, including three by-polls in 2004, 2008 and 2010. He received a thumping 1.08 lakh votes in the 2014 state elections, getting 71.96% of the total vote share.
