Orders to complete social welfare hostels by Aug. 15

VIJAYAWADA, JUNE 1. The Krishna District Collector, K. Prabhakara Reddy, on Tuesday directed officials of the departments concerned to ensure the completion of construction of social welfare hostels before August 15.

Reviewing the progress of the works with senior engineering officials and MROs, the Collector said though the works had been expected to be completed before the commencement of the academic year, they were delayed due to work pressure on officials of different departments as well as fluctuating prices of the raw materials in recent days. Since the market has stabilised as of now, the officials could take up the works again and ensure their completion in time.
