Division of beach

Meanwhile, Municipal Commissioner M.V. Satyanarayana who visited the Ramakrishna Beach on Wednesday said the beach should be divided into parts, allotted to a certain number of workers for implementation of pinpoint sanitation.

Sanitation has to be given a thrust in view of immersion of Vinayaka idols going on. He asked commissioners of Zones I, II and III to make visits to the beach every morning till the immersion was completed.

Chief Engineer B. Jayamrami Reddy and Chief Medical Officer (Health) Satyanarayana Raju were present.
