Kadapa: The Weekly Grievance Day at the Collectorate on every Monday is losing its relevance as people's problems are not resolved by lower-rung officials. Many people, who submitted their petitions at the Collectorate, come back to district headquarters, stating that they were scolded at Tahasildar offices to which their petition was forwarded.

People from faroff places like Jammalamadugu, Yerragunta, Pulivendula, Rajampet, Badvel and other mandals are the worst sufferers due to the delay in resolving their issues. They are coming to the Kadapa by spending much time and money to submit their petitions as their probelms are not resolved in the respective mandals.

It has now become a routine for the officials at the Collectorate to give a slip acknowledging the receipt of the petition and forwarding it to respective mandals. Most of the complaints were related to the land disputes. In many instances, land distributed to the poor under various welfare schemes were not handed over to them and the allotment is only on paper in the form of patta.

Gajjala Rami Reddy of Chintha Komma mandal approached the Collector on Monday and informed him that he was not given white ration card despite submitting applications on several occasions for the last 10 years. On Monday, District Collector T Baburao Naidu received petitions from the people at the Collectorate on Monday.
