Lok Satta launches construction of classrooms In adopted Mahbubnagar village

The Lok Satta Party today took up construction of three new classrooms in a primary school at Kesavaram village in Ija mandal of Mahbubnagar district.

The party has adopted the flood-ravaged village with a view to facilitating its all-round development. As the first step, the party decided to construct three classrooms with a total plinth area of 1000 square feet. Party senior leaders Katari Srinivasa Rao and N. Ravinder laid the foundation today.

The party planned to complete construction of the three new rooms by utilizing modern technology and make them available to students by the first week of November.

Talking to the media, party spokesmen V. Laxman Balaji said P. Bhaskara Rao said a survey by the Lok Satta Party had revealed that the villagers were exchanging rice, clothes and utensils they received from NGOs for liquor at the three unauthorized liquor outlets in the village.

The party leaders reiterated their demand that both legal and illegal liquor outlets in the flood-hit areas be shut down for three months.

The party sought an impartial inquiry into the suicide of Devarakadra mandal agricultural officer Rajeswari in the wake of reports that she resorted to the extreme step because of political pressures. Officials could be insulated from political pressures only if administration was decentralized.
