Narayankhed: Swiftly responding to a story “Banjara women invent new ways to recycle water” published on Monday in The Hans India, Medak Collector Ronald Rose swung into action on Tuesday by visiting a hamlet in Narayankhed, where acute shortage of water and absence of road connectivity was reported by the Hans team.

After interacting with the people of Kondyanaik Thanda of Yenakpally Gram Panchayat in Manur Mandal about their woes, Ronald Rose instructed the assistant engineer of Rural Water Supply, to provide water to the hamlet using transport facility. He inspected a private borewell in the interior area of the hamlet. 

He decided to hire the private borewell of Ravana Naik and lay a pipeline from the borewell to the water tank to supply water to KondyanaikThanda and Thakur Naik Thanda once the by-election to the Narayanhed assembly constituency concludes.

The Collector opined that by building a check-dam in the low-lying area of the hamlet would not only yield sufficient water for both the hamlets but would also improve groundwater levels. He directed Srinivas, AE, Rural Water  Supply, to prepare proposals to end the miseries of the villagers.

He also assured the villagers that a BT road would be laid to connect the hamlet with the gram panchayat for smooth commuting. The Collector also visited Chowkanpally village pump house and the overhead tank in Borgi village in Kangti Mandal and enquired into the provision of water to several villages in the mandal with the RWS officials. RDO Madhukar Reddy and other officials accompanied the Collector during the visit.

Kudos to Collector
