Interesting Points

New builiding which was constructed as extension of Bhadrachalam area Hospital with a 100-bed capacity was not put to use. Lack of medical personnel like doctors and nurses is being cited as the main reason. There is a demand from the locals that some of the mandals like Etapaka, Kannagudem, Pichukulapadu, Purushottam patnam which were merged with AP be bought under Bhadrachalam of Telangana for the past four years. Locals have approached leaders of various political parties, organized press meets but nothing has yielded from these efforsts so far.
