Walking track to be laid for fitness enthusiasts, nature lovers

A mini-tank bund will be developed along the existing small water body abutting the Lakaram tank here at an estimated cost of ₹1.5 crore to lay an additional walking track for fitness enthusiasts and nature lovers, said Transport Minister Puvvada Ajay Kumar.

He was speaking after launching a campaign titled ‘Clean and Green Khammam’ on the Lakaram tank bund in the presence of several municipal corporators and officials here on Monday.

The Khammam Municipal Corporation (KMC) launched the campaign involving people from various spheres mainly NCC cadets. Addressing the gathering on the tank bund, Mr Ajay Kumar said the Lakaram tank bund has become a popular recreational spot following the State government’s renewed focus to develop the scenic spot into a major recreational hub.

He called upon the denizens of the town to extend full cooperation to KMC’s endeavour in making Khammam a clean and green city. Municipal Commissioner Anuraag Jayanti and others were present.
