YSR Congress leader Sharmila on Friday expressed surprise over the fact that people in Panchayat Raj Minister K. Jana Reddy’s constituency, Nagarjunasagar, were facing water shortage.

Continuing her ‘Maropraja Prasthanam Padayatra’ in Alinagar, Suryapalli, Nidamanoor, B.K. Pahad and Mukundapuram in the constituency, she interacted with people and held ‘rachabanda’ meetings with women.

They complained to her about their hardship in securing water for both drinking and irrigation purposes, as also the denial of Arogyasri facility. She alleged that Mr. Jana Reddy had done nothing to benefit his constituency. She accused the Kiran Kumar Reddy government of imposing higher power tariff on people.
