He insisted that the Plant will be at Jammalamadugu area, but didn’t disclose whether it is Brahmani or other. He alleged that the previous government’s decision, was to set up a Steel Plant at Kambaladinne area, which is also in Jammalamadugu Assembly constituency. Mr Reddy said that “We are looking for a Steel Plant nearer to us. It has become a dream for all. It was politicised. They had made dramas. When it completes, we will get a good name. No works have been progressing in the Plant and it was completely stopped. Our government will construct a Steel Plant. We will lay foundation for the Steel Plant on December 26 and it would be completed within three years. The Steel Plant will provide employment to 20,000 people.”

The Chief Minister comments are regarding Brahmani Steel Plant only. But, he has not mentioned the name of the Plant. But it indirectly indicates the same Plant. The public attended the meeting and made high pitch slogans supporting to the Steel Plant’s announcement made by Mr Reddy.
