Telangana Minister KT Rama Rao on Sunday, under his 'Gift a Smile' initiative, handed over 250 custom-made vehicles to differently-abled beneficiaries.
As announced on his birthday last month, the minister provided the custom-made vehicles to the beneficiaries, and thanked the ministers and MLAs who came forward to support the cause.
This was the first phase of the programme under which 1,000 vehicles will be distributed.
He said all those who have been assured vehicles by him and his office will receive them soon in locally-arranged events.
KTR, as the minister is popularly known, had, on his birthday on July 24, announced that he will personally donate 100 vehicles to the differently abled.
He had appealed to his followers and well-wishers not to celebrate his birthday by cutting cakes, installing hoardings and banners but instead spend the same money donate custom-made vehicles to differently-abled.
