Food processing unit to come up at Kuppam

Coinciding with Sankranti, Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu has showered boons on his native Chittoor district.

Ending his three-day stay at his native village, Naravaripalle, on Tuesday, Mr. Naidu left for the airport after inaugurating a Community Health Centre (CHC) built at a cost of ₹6 crore. He also launched work on the proposed four-lane road between Naravaripalle and Padiputlabailu.

Addressing the media, Mr. Naidu announced that water from the Handri Neeva Sujala Sravanthi would be released by next year for both drinking and irrigation needs. He also expressed satisfaction over the pace of ongoing works on projects such as Somasila-Swarnamukhi, Balaji reservoir, and Swarnamukhi reservoir, and said Chittoor would turn into a drought-proof district sooner than later. He said Madanapalle division would emerge as a tomato hub, and announced to launch a food processing unit in Kuppam constituency soon.

In what was seen as a festival message, Mr. Naidu advised people to take pride in their rich legacy and follow ancient customs and traditions. Reminiscing his childhood days, he said they used to celebrate ‘Palakala Panduga’ on Kanuma. “Perhaps, this festival is being called as ‘Jallikattu’ today.” he added.
