‘Indiramma Kalala Brundalu’ will fan out into SC, ST colonies in rural mandals as well as in urban areas and hold ‘gram sabhas’ from April 9 to 30 with a view to attending to people’s grievances and needs, according to district Collector V. Seshadri.

Addressing a meeting of revenue officers, mandal development officers and others at the ZP conference hall here on Sunday, he said that at least two teams should reach out to the target group under the leadership of a tehsildar. He said the programme to be launched was a prestigious one of the government aimed at reaching out to people for resolving local issues.

Joint Collector Praveen Kumar asked officers to identify specific problems at the local level.

DRDA Project Director Maheshwara Reddy and other officials were present.
