NALGONDA: The BJP general secretary, K. Naresh Kumar, has asked the State Government to declare Nalgonda district `the world capital of fluorosis.'

Addressing a public meeting to mark the end of the Jala Chaitanya Yatra undertook by the district BJP demanding water for the fluoride-hit Narayanapur mandal on Tuesday, the actor-turned politician said funds would flow from various sources if the Government made such an announcement.

The BJP leader accused the Chief Minister, Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy, of failing to keep his promise of adopting the fluoride-hit district.

He also criticised the Nalgonda MP, Suravaram Sudhakar Reddy, for `neglecting' the issue. "Had the Communists insisted on it, the Congress Government should have solved the drinking water problem long ago,'' he observed.

Mr. Naresh sought to know from Dr. Reddy, the AICC president, Sonia Gandhi, and the Prime Minister, Manmohan Singh, the fate of the proposal of linking the rivers of Krishna and Godavari.

The party district in-charge, D. Surender Reddy, and the general secretary, V. Chandrasekhar, also spoke.
