KHAMMAM: The CPI(M), CPI and TDP on Wednesday demanded the government to scrap the Gos no. 271, 272,274 and 238 aimed at weakening the local bodies. Addressing a joint press conference, P. Sudahrshan Rao, CPI (M) district secretary, B. Hemantha Rao, CPI district secretary and Balasani Lakshmi Narayana, TDP leader and MLC, said the four Gos would deprive the local bodies of their say in implementation of the employment guarantee scheme.

They said the ministers in-charge of the districts were now being entrusted with the task of finalising the works.
