Commissioner vow to turn V'wada into a metro city

Vijayawada, Jan 5: Revealing his mind to the officials, new municipal commissioner Ravibabu who took charge on Monday asked  them to work to their full potential.Addressing officials on Tuesday, he likened the people's representatives as pillars and the officials as foundation stones for the smooth functioning of the administration. If both work in tandem, wonders could be created, he said. ``I would formulate an action plan soon to face natural calamities with minimum loss.''Endowed with the experience as additional commissioner of disaster management,  he said he would focus on natural calamities.

 He said he is aware of the inundation of some areas even during a small rain and prepare a report on how many centimetres of rainfall inundates low-lying areas. As the matter mainly concerns the irrigation department, the commissioner said he would review the situation with them soon.``I would strive to make Vijayawada a metro city on par with Chandigarh, Hyderabad and Delhi,'' he said and enlisted the support of the officials and people in this regard. He said there was no dearth of funds as long as JNNURM funds were there but only the problem dogging the corporation is lack of staff. He said necessary staff would be filled soon. He warned the officials that corruption at any level would not be tolerated.
