“The mission is to ensure quality education and medicare to each and every citizen. Along with developing road network, we are also focussing on ensuring uninterrupted power supply to all the villages,” he said addressing a public meeting at Velangi, on the city’s outskirts.

Inaugurates sub-station

Along with Kakinada Rural MLA Pilli Anathalakshmi, Mr. Rajappa inaugurated the 33KVA electricity sub-station built at a cost of Rs. 1.47 crore under Deen Dayal Upadhyaya Grama Jyothi Yojana at Velangi and opened primary health centre constructed at a cost of Rs. 1.18 crore at Karapa, besides taking part in ‘Vanam-Manam’ plantation programme.

Speaking on the occasion, the Minister said that the idea was to convert each and every village into a model village by developing infrastructure and facilities.

“This includes constructing houses to the eligible and supplying purified drinking water to all the villages,” he said, adding that the Anna Canteens would be expanded to the mandal headquarters in the second phase, enabling the daily labourers to have tasty and qualitative meal at just Rs. 5. “The response to the canteens is quite good and we are keen on expanding the services to the mandal level very soon,” he said.
