Ongoing Programmes

Pending issues

Except in Chilukuru, severe water crunch is being experienced by people of Mote, Nadigudem mandals. This problem persists in Kodada and Anantagiri mandals also. Apart from drinking water problem, the farmers are also facing shortage of irrigation water to their agriculture lands in several mandals.

Important places

Raja Vari Kota at Nadigudem, Gurrappa banyan tree, colour bridge at Ramachandrapuram, Pulichinthala project and several other places have potential to attract tourists in large numbers, if they are properly developed as tourist spots. These places do not have proper transportation system, which also makes it difficult for people to visit the places for recreation.
