Khammam: The quality of works is appalling, the Congress Legislature Party Deputy Leader Ponguleti Sudhakar Reddy said, referring to the beautification works taken up as part of Lakkaram tank bund development.
Reddy, who inspected Lakkaram tank bund here on Monday, said that the BT road constructed as part of beautification works was substandard. “Within 48 hours of tank bund inauguration, the potholes appeared on the road. The government needs to clarify on it,” he said, demanding the government order a probe immediately into the issue.
Later, Reddy who inspected the dumping yard at Danvaigudem, heaped praise on Municipal authorities for its maintenance. He was impressed with the CCTV camera monitoring of the yard. Mayor G Papalal and Municipal Commissioner Sandeep Kumar Jha were also with him.
Earlier, Reddy visited the red gram procurement centre located in the Agriculture market Yard and interacted with farmers. He demanded the government to provide minimum support price (MSP) besides taking measures to avoid middlemen exploiting the farmers. Criticising the Central and State governments, Reddy demanded them to rescue the farmers by procuring the entire produce.
Referring to the grading system of red gram, the CLP leader demanded the government to purchase the produce. He sought the authorities to create awareness about Aadhaar card, bank accounts and passbooks etc. among the farmers.
Khammam Municipal Corporation Corporator Balagangadhar Tilak, Youth Congress leader Ramisetty Manohar Naidu, Raparthi Sharath Kumar, Md Fazal, Vaddeboina Narsimhulu and K Gopal were among others present.
