The Congress MLA has distributed nearly 30,000 kilograms of rice, and similar amounts of vegetables, pulses, oil and other essentials to the tribals, and others living in Mulugu.

The MLA was also one of the first legislators to raise the issue of face masks, a month before the Telangana government mandated the same.
"Till now we have reached out to a total of 356 villages. Mulugu is the biggest constituency in Telangana with around 600 villages, most of which are in forest and tribal areas," Seethakka, two times MLA, said.
