Addressing the gathering the party leader Vanama Raghavendra Rao thanked the Chief Minister for introducing the Revenue Act aiming to transform the revenue department. The Act was a historic moment in Telangana, he said.
The Act would ensure transparency and alleviate the problems faced by farmers and the common public in updating the revenue records. It would also help to avoid irregularities in land management and documents maintenance.
Besides the farming community, all sections of society were celebrating and welcoming the new Revenue Act. The TRS cadres should make efforts to create awareness among people about the Act and publicise it, Raghavendra Rao noted. The DCMS vice chairman Kotwal Srinivas Rao, TRS leaders K Nageswar Rao, Kampelli Kanakesh Patel, Kanakala Balakrishna, SVK Acharyulu and others took part in the rally.

Sathupalli MLA, S Venkata Veeraiah took part in the rally and addressed the public and said the rally was organised to express gratitude to the Chief Minister for bringing out the Revenue Act. The Act would be beneficial to the farming community and reduce corruption, he said.
The MLA further noted that the TRS government in the State was working for the welfare of the farming community while the Central government led by BJP was troubling farmers with anti-farmer Farm Bill, which was meant to benefit corporate forces.
