In a bid to take the administration closer to the people, Prakasam District Collector G.S.R.K.R. Vijaykumar held a meeting of the grievance cell at remote Hanumantunipadu and P.C. Palli in this drought-prone constituency.

Joined by Congress MLA from Kanigiri M.Ugra Narasimha Reddy, he gave patient hearing to the woes of the people who had come from remote villages.

People waited in long queues to draw the attention of the Collector who moved to the two mandal headquarters villages along with district officials to resolve the people's problems quickly.

The district administration decided to visit two mandals each every Wednesday.
