Kothagudem: District Collector Rajiv Gandhi Hanumanthu has been impressed most by the awareness of residents of Kummaripadu, where all 145 houses have rain-water harvesting pits and individual toilets. He said that works on the Rs 7,900-crore Sitharama Project, aimed to irrigate 9.50-lakh acres were progressing at a brisk pace.
Speaking to The Hans India here on Wednesday on the occasion of the first anniversary of Bhadradri-Kothagudem district, he said that nearly 1,000 double bedroom houses have been sanctioned in the five Assembly constituencies for the homeless poor and the works in all the constituencies—Illandu, Pinapaka, Bhadrachalam and Aswaraopeta – barring Kothagudem constituency were progressing well.
Collector Hanumanthu said that the district has set an example for other districts in the State in the construction of double bedroom houses. The pace of execution of the Rs 2,200-crore Mission Bhagiratha works has been accelerated to reach the target of providing tap water to all households in the district by November-end, he added.
He said that the revision of revenue records in respect of 377 villages is yet to be done. So far, defects in revenue records pertaining to 2.50 lakh acres in 87 villages have been rectified, he added. The two sites have been identified for construction of government offices’ complex. The Chief Minister would soon lay the foundation stone for the complex, he said.
During the Harita haaram programme, 1.60 lakh saplings have been planted. He said that geo-tagging of 80 per cent of the saplings has been accomplished. District officials have played a memorable role in the implementation of the Haritaharam, the Collector recalled.
Speaking about his job as District Collector during the past one year, he said that it was most satisfying. The role of officials in the district was good and he was optimistic of enlarging the scope of services being rendered by the Education and Medical and Health departments.
