On Tuesday, the SP bought a three cent plot at Kapatralla in Devanakonda mandal of Kurnool district and got it registered in his name at Kallur registration office.
Speaking on the occasion, the SP said Kapatralla village is making rapid strides on all fronts. He said the people are actively participating in the development programmes. He said development was impeded by factionalism in the past but it was spurred by a peaceful atmosphere now. He said people who have shed factionalism have opportunities for growth and leading peaceful lives.
Sri Rama Murthy, who is the executant of the plot, lauded the SP for adopting Kappatralla and striving to develop it. The SP thanked the revenue officials, builders, bankers and others for extending cooperation in developing the once notoriously faction village.

Youth urged to donate blood SP Ake Ravi Krishna appealed to people to come forward to donate blood and save lives on the occasion of World Blood Donor Day here on Tuesday. He flagged off a rally at the Collectorate in which students of various nursing colleges took part.
Speaking on the occasion, the SP lauded those who came voluntarily to donate blood. There was a misconception that the health of the donor would be affected on donating blood. To the contrary, there was no harm in donating blood.
Additional district medical and health officer Rupa and Pathology Professor Dr Baleeswari said donating blood to the needy was nothing but saving a life. They said there was a need to create awareness of the importance of blood donation among the public. The present day younger generation should come forward to donate blood voluntarily through special camps to ensure adequate availability of blood at any period of time, they added.
Later, they honoured voluntary blood donors and organisers of the voluntary blood donation camps on the occasion. S M D Kasim was honoured for donating blood 75 times. Earlier, he was felicitated by IAS officer Samuel Anand at a State-level programme held at Vijayawada.
Various doctors including Tamilarasi, Anni Reddy and DCM, Ali Hyder, Red Cross Society member Srinivasulu and students of various nursing colleges participated in the programme.
