Sumita Dawra, Counsellor (Economics) Indian Embassy in Beijing, presented a book authored by her, ‘Poor but spirited in Karimnagar’ to Chief Minister N. Kiran Kumar Reddy here on Thursday.

The book based on the experiences of Ms. Sumita during her tenure as Collector of Karimnagar district will be launched by Civil Supplies Minister D. Sridhar Babu at Indian School of Business here on Friday.

The book deals with problems in programme implementation in poverty alleviation, education, child labour, health, agriculture, water and sanitation and urban issues and suggests better strategies to reach the targeted beneficiaries.

Mr. Kiran Kumar Reddy said that her experiences would be handy for the Government machinery in addressing the lacunae and ensure speedy implementation of welfare programmes.
