SANGAREDDY: District Collector L. Sridhar on Tuesday directed the mandal tahsildars to supervise the distribution of fertilizer as the rainy season has started and farmers are getting ready to get them.

Addressing a review meeting of the revenue divisional officers and tahsildars at Zilla Parishad meeting hall, Mr. Sridhar said that tahsildars should intervene wherever farmers were agitating and pacify them thereby solving the issue then and there. Similarly, he also cautioned about outbreak of diarrhoea in the wake of improper sanitation and contamination of water during rainy season.

He also directed the revenue officials to identify the land for issuing patta to the poor. Joint Collector Ram Sankar Naik was present.
