The action plan includes specific guidelines such as managing sanitation, removal of garbage, cleaning of public toilets, conserving electricity and setting up of nurseries as part of the greenery project, among others "The Chief Minister gave a call to develop Telangana villages as model villages in the country in such a way that others will emulate. He called for the successful implementation of the 30-day action plan," an official press release said.
