Bailampur villagers stall Kondapochamma reservoir work

With elections over for Assembly and gram panchayat elections around the corner, after a gap of a few months the villagers of Bailampur are on agitation once again.

The villagers stalled the bund works alleging that the promises made to them were not fulfilled while 90 per cent of Kondapochamma bund work was complete. “Revenue Divisional Officer D. Vijayender Reddy interacted with us very frequently when the reservoir works were in progress . But now no official is bothering to meet us not trying to address our problems. Many of the households are yet to get compensation and we do not know when we will get it,” said the angry villagers. There were heated arguments between the villagers and officials and at one point of time the villagers even announced that they would not participate in the gram panchayat elections. MRO Vijay Kumar and police inspector Shivalingam pacified the villagers and finally works were resumed.
