Hyderabad: State government has accorded priority to the improvement of infrastructure in the villages merged recently with the Urban Local Bodies along with disinfecting the areas to check the spread of vector born and other communicable diseases in the monsoon season.

State Chief Secretary Somesh Kumar on Wednesday held a video conference with the District Collectors on Pattana Pragathi and Rythu Vedika works. He told the officials the government has paid special focus on newly merged villages in municipalities. The official pointed out that newly introduced Municipalities Act was providing for importance to creation of critical infrastructure in newly merged villages. He directed Collectors to personally monitor these interventions closely and also continue the momentum and focus on sanitation, spraying of disinfectant as well as anti-larval and vector control measures.

It should be ensured that Rythu Vedika works are allotted to senior officers for monitoring.
