    “A total of 250 people live in the villages that make up Arla Panchayat. The villages, however, do not have an Anganwadi central. No school is present. There are no roads. After carving Anakapalle from Visakhapatnam, we submitted a memorandum to the district collector and symbolically staged a protest with makeshift stretchers. Still there are no roads,” Andhra Pradesh Fifth Schedule Sadhana Committee District President K Govinda Rao told TNM.
