Tandur: Municipal Chairperson Sunita and Commissioner Bhogeswarlu have said that the jurisdiction of the town municipality is stretched on all sides. Quoting a GO issued by the municipal administration department’s principal secretary Aravind Kumar, they said the civic is to take care of all its issues like giving permission for house-building, water bills, infrastructural development and other activities in areas merged with the municipality.

Disclosing this to media here on Tuesday, they said that Rajiv colony, NTR Colony, Indiramma Colony, Rajiv Swagruha colony, Malreddypalli, Kokat and Rasoolpura have been merged with the civic body. They said the town’s population is going to increase by another 20,000.

The municipal chairperson said that she had submitted memoranda to municipal administration minister K Taraka Rama Rao to increase the purview of the Tandur municipality. Honoring the request, the government merged all villagers which are within a radius of 3 km from the town. The problems of some regions which are neither included under a gram panchayat nor a town municipality seem to be over with the increase of the municipal limits of the town. The number of wards increased from the existing 30 wards.

Meanwhile, the ruling TRS and opposion Congress, TDP, BJP, BLF, Jana Samiti, CPM and CPI are busy increasing their cadre strength in the newly merged areas. The town municipality has been evolving a strategy to collect property tax and issue house-building permissions. Since the municipal elections are one and half months away, the leaders in the merged colonies are busy preparing their own strategies for the elections.
