Attending as a chief guest to the programme, Nageswara Rao said among all the sense organs, eyes were the most important. Knowing the value of vision and eyes, Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao, along with other intellectuals, designed this wonderful programme called ‘Kanti Velugu’ which would be launched on the auspicious Independence Day on August 15, he added.
All necessary arrangements were made for conducting eye tests to about 3.5 crores of people present across the State. It is the responsibility of every public representative and official to make the programme a grand success from village to mandal and district levels by conducting awareness programmes, said the Minister.
All the people who had problems with vision and eyes must utilise this opportunity by attending the camps which would be set up in their respective villages and mandal headquarters, he said.
