Hyderabad, May 29 (Hydnow): Nalgonda MP N. Uttam Kumar Reddy today demanded that Chief Minister K. Chandrashekar Rao first clear all the pending bills before launching the 5th phase of Palle Pragathi program.
The MP addressed a series of meetings in various villages in Huzurnagar constituency in Surpayet district on the ninth day of Rachabanda program/Rythu Bharosa Yatra in Nalgonda Lok Sabha constituency. Uttam Kumar said of the proposed 318 villages and three municipalities, so far he covered 56 villages and one municipality highlighting the promises made to farmers in the Warangal Declaration unveiled by Congress leader Rahul Gandhi.
Uttam alleged that bills worth several hundred crores pertaining to various works executed during the first four phases of Palle Pragathi were still pending. He said non-clearance of pending bills has pushed hundreds of Gram Panchayats across Telangana State into a huge financial crisis. While the development in those gram panchayats has come to a halt, the Sarpanches, who got different works executed are facing a severe financial crisis and a few of them even committed suicide, he alleged.
The Nalgonda MP also wrote an open letter to the Chief Minister on this issue. Citing an instance, Uttam Kumar said the Sarpanch of Vishwanth Colony in Hanamkonda, Vallepu Anitha Ramesh, has turned into a daily wage labourer to clear a loan of Rs 8 lakh which she took on interest to carry out the development works in the village. He said thousands of Sarpanches are facing hardship due to the non-clearance of pending bills. (Hydnow)
