The main opposition Congress and TDP boycotted the presentation on the ground that this will set an unhealthy precedent. Opposition leader K. Jana Reddy told the speaker in a letter that there was no precedent in parliament or any assembly of a debate being initiated with audio-visual presentation. The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) members were present in the house. Before beginning the presentation, KCR explained how Telangana suffered in irrigation sector due to injustice and discrimination in united Andhra Pradesh. Explaining why his government re-designed the projects, he declared that all irrigation projects will be completed to irrigate one crore acres of land and to turn Telangana into a lush green and prosperous state.
