Taking the lead in the Telangana survey, CM KCR and his family participated in the Intensive Household Survey in Hyderabad and gave out all required information in the 3 page survey form bought by enumerators. His son KTR and grandchildren were present during the survey.
Interestingly, only a day before, TDP MLA Revanth Reddy challenged the CM to do the same and criticized the CM of arranging the survey with an agenda. While allies TDP and BJP have dubbed the survey with all kinds of labels, the State’s population overwhelmingly participated in the survey with more than 90% of survey reportedly complete by 9 PM. In some areas, survey was happening late into the night. The State Government already announced tomorrow as a holiday in view of the huge exercise done by employees today. The survey has been a success despite logistical and practical problems faced all through the day. Especially in Hyderabad, the survey went well despite encountering more households than expected. Accurate figures on the survey’s participation, coverage would come up in couple of days.
