Bhadradri development assured
The government is keen to develop Bhadrachalam, the abode of Sri Seeta Ramachandra Swamy, Minister for Roads and Buildings Tummala Nageswar Rao asserted.

Bhadrachalam (Khammam): The government is keen to develop Bhadrachalam, the abode of Sri Seeta Ramachandra Swamy, Minister for Roads and Buildings Tummala Nageswar Rao asserted. He stressed the need for bringing back Yatapaka, Kannayigudem, Pichukalapadu, Purushothamapatnam and Gundala panchayats that went to Andhra Pradesh during the transfer of seven submergence mandals from Telangana after the State bifurcation.
“As these panchayats play a key role in the territorial connectivity between temple town and other mandals – Dummugudem, Cherla, Venkatapuram and Wajedu, the government needs them back in the state. Unless these panchayats are regained, Bhadrachalam will face difficulty in the administration,” the Minister said.
He said that government sent engineer in chief of the Endowments department and Art director Anand Sai to work out a strategy to develop the temple town. Later addressing a meeting at Pusur in Khammam district on Thursday, the Minister said: “With many highways passing through Telangana and many roads worth about Rs 26,000 crore would be grounded this year, the State will become a pivotal point in the years to come.”
The Minister said that the high-level bridge constructed across Godavari River and thrown open for public use a few months ago is not only cut shorts the distance between Telangana and Chhattisgarh but also paves way for trading links. He heaped praise on contractors and engineers for completing the construction of bridge in just about 36 months.
He told the administration to give preference to the engineers, who officiated the bridge works while giving transfer placements. Stating that Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao had sanctioned Rs 200 crore for the construction of internal roads in Agency area, Mahabubabad MP A Sitaram Naik said that it would be of immense help to people living in the region.
MLC Balasani Laxminarayana said that the high-level bridge would augur well for the development of villages in Warangal and Khammam districts. R&B Engineer-in-Chief Ravinder Rao said that they will take up the construction of 150 bridges in the current financial year.
Later, the minister felicitated the contractors and officials who associated with the construction of high-level bridge across the Godavari at Pusur.
Aswaraopet MLA T Venkateswarku, ZP chairperson G Kavitha, ITDA Project Officer Rajiv Gandhi Hanumanthu, ZP CEO M Nagesh and Wajedu Tahsildar Prakash Rao were present.
