Nalgonda MP, MLA serve food to the poor

November 01, 2012 12:00 am | Updated 05:22 am IST - NALGONDA:

Welfare schemes for the poor, launched by former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi were praised by Nalgonda MP G. Sukender Reddy and legislators Komatireddy Venkat Reddy and Ch. Lingaiah here on Wednesday. They said the schemes really helped the target sections.

They were addressing a gathering after paying floral tributes to Indira Gandhi’s statue at Panagal bypass road on her death anniversary. While Mr. Lingaiah garlanded the statue, the MP and MLA offered floral tributes to a portrait placed nearby.

Mr. Sukender Reddy and Mr. Venkat Reddy reiterated their warning to Congress that it would be wiped out in Telangana if the Centre does not stick to its announcement of December 9, 2009, of initiating the process of State formation. They called upon Telangana Ministers to stay away from AP Formation Day functions.

A programme to feed the poor was organised to mark the anniversary, with the MP and Mr. Reddy themselves serving the food.
