Drinking water, rollback of power tariff are major demands
The ‘Prajapatham' programme witnessed some unruly scenes in the district headquarters on Monday with the Telangana Rashtra Samiti (TRS) activists staging demonstrations and stalling officials from conducting the proceedings.
At Labour Colony in Warangal town, the residents too protested demanding immediate attention to drinking water problem and rollback of power tariff.
Police took into custody some TRS leaders, including A. Vidyasagar, for creating ruckus at the programme.
Launching the programme at Bhupalpally constituency, Government Chief Whip G.V. Ramana Reddy said the State government had sanctioned Rs. 100 crore to the district towards compensation for the loss incurred by farmers due to recent hailstorms and long dry spells in the past.
The Chief Whip toured Parlapalli, Peda Komatipalli, Aknepalli, Dubyala and Raghavareddypet villages in Mogullapalli mandal. IT Services Minister P. Lakshmaiah participated the programme at Guruvannapet village in Cheryal mandal
Adilabad Staff Reporter writes: The ‘Prajapatham' started in Adilabad district on a dull note as only a few people attended the mass contact programme at many places. Villagers at Kajjerla in Talamadugu mandal hindered officials for about an hour in the morning demanding drinking water and stopping of unscheduled power cuts.
In Adilabad Municipality, only a handful of residents attended the meetings in different wards. People were so unenthusiastic that they did not submit petitions on problems. At Mahalaxmiwada locality, people questioned the officials about the fate of their petitions given during the same programme in 2010.
Collector A. Ashok and Nirmal legislator A. Maheshwar Reddy faced a protest from villagers of Kusli in Dilawarpur mandal. The villagers were angry over the shortage of drinking water and continuing apathy of officials.
The MLA and Mr. Ashok earlier launched the programme at Madgaon in the same mandal. They also attended the programme at Marsapur (G), Rampur and New Lolam.
Nizamabad Staff Reporter writes: Minister for Major Irrigation P. Sudarshan Reddy, participating in the programme at Langdapur and Bardheepur villages in Bodhan mandal, he said drinking water and power supply, employment generation, credit creation to women and farmers and health services were included in the Prajapatham.
