Speaking on the occasion, she said that due to heavy rains and floods last year, the road between the villages was washed away and the people of the area faced problems.

“With funds sanctioned by the state government for development works at Medaram, a high level-bridge will be constructed at a cost of Rs 4.05 crore between the two villages of Eturnagaram mandal,” Dr Seethakka added.

District collector Ila Tripaty, Integrated Tribal Development Agency project officer Ankith, additional collectors P. Srija and Venu Gopal were present.
