Villagers show their ire against minister

Nalgonda,Oct 27: The  villagers of  Gendepuri in Tirumalgiri  mandal of  Nalgonda  district  demonstrated against  the  slow and  inadequate  response of the Government  administration  in providing  the safe  drinking  water  when the  state Minister  of  Information  and Technology   Mr  Komitireddy  Venkat Reddy visited  their   area  on Tuesday.The  minster who  happened to  pass through  this area on his  way to  Tirmaulagiri  and Thungarthi  mandals  to take  part in many  welfare schemes  was not allowed  to  step into  their  village by village  women  who displayed  empty  pots  and  vessels  before the minister.

Fed up with official apathy, people of Genderpuri village, suffering for decades due to high fluoride content in drinking water, they have shown their  anger and   frustration by not  allowing the  minster into their village.Mr  Venkatreddy, the tech-savvy engineering graduate who won from Nalgonda in the general elections held in 1999, 2004 and 2009 consecutively understood their problem and assured  them  that he would  strive  for  the  supply of pure  drinking  water  to  this  village.Pacified  by  minister’s statement  the   villagers  allowed  him  to  proceed  to Tirmulagiri  and  Thungarthi  mandals  where   he is scheduled  to take  part in the welfare schemes.
