WARANGAL: The TRS government would develop slum areas across the state and provide them basic facilities, Warangal East MLA Nannapuneni Narendar said while inaugurating a piped drinking water scheme under the Mission Bhagiratha project at Mysaiah Nagar on Thursday.
Around 250 families were living in Mysaiah Nagar slum for many years without basic facilities like roads, drainage and drinking water. Whenever there was rainfall, the entire colony would submerge in the floodwater.
Narendar as MLA took the initiative to change things. By investing around Rs 43 crore, he took up several developmental works, including laying drains and roads as also ensuring easy draining out of the floodwaters.
During his visit to the colony, the residents gave him a grand welcome by carrying bonalu on their heads and beating the drums.
Narendar said that the flood-prone area has become a role model in Warangal with enormous development in recent months. “The TRS government is committed to uplift the weaker sections and introduced several welfare schemes across the state," he told the gathering.
Later, the MLA handed over pensions to the beneficiaries along with allocating numbers to the houses and promised them issuing of pattas as per GO 58 and 59 as early as possible. He also promised to build a community hall and start a primary school in the colony.
Corporators Praveen Reddy, Kumara Swamy and Bhogi Suresh were present....
