Kodada/Nalgonda, June 26 (INN): Continuing her interactions with party leaders and activists for the second consecutive day on Wednesday in Telangana, YSR Congress Party honourary president Y S Vijayamma asserted that the Panchayats and other local bodies should be equipped with funds and entrusted with duties and responsibilities as well.
Addressing the YSRCP regional meet at Kodada in Nalgonda district, Vijayamma said villages and hamlets would suffer if there are no sufficient funds for implementing developmental works.
“The Panchayats should be asked to implement developmental works with clear guidelines for the emancipation of the rural poor and strengthening the rural economy but they need enough funds,” she said, adding that due to Government’s apathy in conducting polls to the local bodies in time, the rural economy has been put to suffering for the last three years.
Vijayamma participated in the first regional meeting in Telangana by addressing the Medak district unit of the party at Jogipet on Tuesday. Earlier, she addressed the regional meetings of the party at Tirupati, Vijayawada and Chilakaluripet.
She asked the party leaders to keep a vigil on the illegalities of Congress and TDP which may try to tamper with voters’ lists in the forthcoming Panchayat polls.
