Minister for Roads and Buildings Chintakayala Ayyannapatrudu directed the officials to take action against the officials who are collecting the transport charges to supply the fodder at Rs 2 per kg. According to the government directie, the officials are not supposed to collect the transport charges from the farmers, but the farmers are alleging that the officials are collecting the transport charges, Ayyanna pointed out. The minister also directed the Collector to arrange one bus to each mandal to take up the farmers for horticulture study tour.
Araku MLA K Sarveswara Rao demanded a probe into the collection of Rs 3,000 from the tribals for distribution of sheep. He clarified that the government did not frame any guidelines to collect Rs 3,000 per sheep.
Viakhapatnam South MLA V Ganesh Kumar asked the officials to check the polluted waters being released by some industries into the sea. The MLA said that some of the fish are being vanished due to pollutants being released by the industries without treating.
Responding on the issue, Collector Pravin Kumar directed the joint director of fisheries department to collect the samples and check. If any industry releasing the pollutants directly into the sea, those would be closed, the Collector assured. However, all the MLAs demanded for collection of samples in the blue waters six km away from the shore. While discussing about the maintenance of the fair price shops in the district, Minister Chinarajappa expressed his dissent.
