Gadwal: Gurram Gadda, the island surrounded by Krishna River in the district, is finally going to get development activities with district collector Rajat Kumar Saini, assuring construction of roads, culverts, bridges, supplying of drinking water and facilitating construction of toilets to each household in the village.
Earlier, Gurram Gadda village was neglected since past decades with no proper roads, water facility and sanitation facilities in the village. The village with about 160 households had to face lot of hardships particularly in the rainy season as the road that leads to the village will get submerged during the River Krishna flowing above the normal level. The villagers have to literally do every day adventure to cross the river to reach another village Rampur about 3 kilometres away from the island.
To know the problems and owes of the Gurram Gadda, district collector along with his team visited the village and listed to the people. Speaking at the meeting, the collector assured that by January 20, 2018, the district administration will prepare detailed project report and the engineers will prepare estimation of the cost for construction of roads, culverts and based on their report funds will be released from the government and the works of construction of a 33-feet road up to three kilometres and repairs of all the existing culverts will be done on a war footage.
When the villagers complained about the non-availability of pure drinking water, the collector directed the officials to immediately repair the RO water purification machine or install a new machine and provide drinking water to the villagers. He also asked the officials to study the feasibility of constructing a permanent drinking water reservoir with 80,000 liters for the villages. The officials have been directed to prepare proposals and send it to the government so that it will get approval under mission Bhagiratha.
However, the collector asked villagers to come forward to construct individual latrines and toilets for each individual house hold. The collector sanctioned construction of 127 ILs in the village. “It is very important for you to construct ILs for every house hold. For this the government is giving Rs 12000 to each household to construct ILs and sink pits. If you construct the ILs and sink pits it will keep you safe from diseases,” advised the collector.
