Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao who undertook a visit to Nalgonda on Wednesday held a prolonged meeting with the officials of various government agencies and elected public representatives.
He reviewed at length every issue concerning the old-fashioned town and shared his view that how it should look like in the days to come. From drainage, street lighting, graveyards, roads, town hall, beautification of the town, he detailed at length with the officials and ordered them to work towards it at a faster pace.
“The Nalgonda has suffered a lot for a long time and remained impoverished denying the people their due share in all aspects including safe drinking water. It should all be history henceforth,” Mr KCR told officials in clear terms.
He asked minister Vemula Prashanth Reddy and other MLAs and elected representatives to look in minute details of what is required to turn the town into a modern city. He wanted them to stay put in the town and come out with a blueprint as the state government was ready to spend any amount of money for the purpose.
The Nalgonda should also have IT park, Tankbund, an Urban park, an excellent avenue plantation, and expansion roads and residential colonies. The district administration should also focus on providing housing to the SC, ST, and minorities and land should be identified for the purpose. Similarly, those who worked for Nagarjunasagar dam construction should also be given quarters which they have been asking for a long time.
Mr KCR said, “Nalgonda town should have all amenities and should not be lacking in anything”.
He wanted local minister G Jagadishwar Reddy, MLA K Bhopal Reddy, and district collector P J Patil to coordinate and come out with a fool-proof plan to realise the dream of turning the town into a haven.
Ministers Harish Rao and V. Srinivas Goud, MP Badugula Lingaya Yadav, MLCs Palla Rajeshwara Reddy, Gutta Sukhender Reddy, Shri Koti Reddy, MLAs Chirumarthi, Nomula Bhagat, and others were present at the review meeting.
