The IT and Municipal Administration and Urban Development Minister K T Rama Rao will visit Nalgonda on May 15. This visit is a result of CM KCR’s promise during the 2018 assembly elections to adopt Nalgonda and make it more beautiful. So far, the CM has granted Rs 1,164 crore to fund beautification and development projects in the town. Some of these projects worth Rs 123 crore have been recently completed.
During the visit, KTR will study proposals to sanction another Rs 102.74 crore for ongoing projects. However, rural areas in Nalgonda have not received enough funds for their development. Additionally, there have been accusations of corruption against officials and the BRS MLA.
The minister will inaugurate an urban park near Cherlapally village which cost Rs 3.02 crore to develop. He will also launch newly widened roads, central lighting systems, footpaths, and drainage works from Marriguda Junction to Clocktower Center costing Rs 118 crore. KTR will also inaugurate several statues and a building on the government hospital premises.
Furthermore, he will lay foundation stones for several new projects costing Rs 590.01 crore. These projects include the beautification of Panagal tank bund costing Rs 139.21 crore, the building of a new NG college building costing Rs 30 crore, a new Kalabharati building costing Rs 90.61 crore, and the second phase of the Amrit scheme costing Rs 252.94 crore.
