Tight security

The Guntur district administration has made elaborate arrangements for the Chief Minister N. Kiran Kumar Reddy’s visit to Phirangipuram in Tadikonda constituency on Friday.

He last visited for by-election campaigning in Macherla and Prathipadu almost a year ago.

Rural Development Minister Dokka Manikya Vara Prasada Rao had personally supervised the arrangements along with Collector S. Suresh Kumar and Joint Collector D. Muralidhar Reddy.

The officials concerned are gearing up for the public meeting which will be focusing on the implementation of SC/ST Sub-Plan and they have got due instructions from the Collector to be prepared with authentic information and their plans of action.

The Chief Minister is scheduled to reach Phirangipuram by 11.30 a.m. and proceed to Vignanapuram SC Colony for interacting with the SCs/STs living there.

He will later address a public meeting as part of the ‘Indiramma Kalalu’ programme at St. Paul’s High School grounds and dine with the communities there.

The ruling party leaders have taken upon the task of mobilising the crowds for the event as it is a prestigious scheme (the SC/ST Sub-Plan) which is expected to win over people’s goodwill in the run-up to 2014 elections.

Tight security is being arranged for the Chief Minister’s visit under the guidance of Superintendent of Police J. Satyanarayana.

A large number of policemen are being deployed at the Morning Star College grounds where the Chief Minister’s chopper will be landing and the venue of public meeting.
