Nizamabad: District Collector Dr Yogitha Rana said that there was an urgent need to eliminate the inequalities prevailing among different sections of people in the society. Participating in the civil rights day celebrations in Mendora village of Bheemgal Mandal in the district on Tuesday, she said that there would be no development in the State if the inequalities persist in the society.

The District Collector said that that Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes (Prevention of Atrocities) Act was passed in 1989 to punish those who infringe on the rights of the SCs and STs. Even the high and then mighty would not be spared if they try to trample upon the rights of the scheduled castes or scheduled tribes, she warned and added that everybody has the right to live with dignity on this planet.

Collector Rana said that the police department would organise the civil rights day on every 30 or 31st of every month to highlight the rights of the deprived and backward sections of the society. There should be equality and equal opportunity to all in the society, she added. She advised the parents to admit their wards in government schools.

The District Collector told the officials that the levels of the ground water in the district should be improved and for this purpose, soak pits, rainwater harvesting pits and magic pits should be dug up by the people in the premises of their houses. She directed them to complete the works by another 15 days.

She said that the government would take steps to construct public parks, cremation grounds and dumping yards in the district by involving the workers of MGNREGS. She advised the pregnant women and lactating mothers to consume nutritious food, eggs and drink plenty of milk supplied under Arogyalakshmi scheme at Anganwadi centres in the district to remain healthy.

Every Monday and Friday, women should undergo medical tests for diagnosing cervical cancer. Joint Collector Ravinder Reddy Superintendent of Police Krishna Prasad and other top district officials were present on the occasion.
