Minister for Mines and Geology Galla Aruna made use of the ‘Praja Patham' to promise drinking water to the residents of her Chandragiri constituency, a much-sought-after subject during the hot summer.

On the first day of the protracted initiative of the government to keep its ears to the ground, the Minister announced the sanction of three more bore wells to tackle the drinking water crisis.

Later, referring to the mega drinking water project meant to extend the Telugu Ganga to wet the parched throats of the residents of Chittoor, the Minister said the pipeline would be taken via Chandragiri and said it would take care of the constituency's drinking water needs for the future.

MGNREGS

She reminded that Rs.10.33 lakh was spent for the year 2011-12 on Chandragiri constituency alone under the MGNREGS, while Rs.3.93 lakh was given as subsidy for 250 agricultural connections.

Asset distribution

The Minister gave away assets worth Rs.26 lakh to around 211 ‘Pavala Vaddi' beneficiary groups and an input subsidy of Rs.1.04 lakh to around 47 farmers in the district.

Joint Collector Ch.Vijaya Mohan, Additional Joint Collector Venkata Subba Reddy and Revenue Divisional Officer A. Prasad were present on the occasion.
