Development boards for all regions: YSR

Staff Reporter

Government for equal progress of all parts in the State, says the Chief Minister



All ATTENTION: The Chief Minister, Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy, having a word with the MP, Rayapati Sambasiva Rao, at rythu sadassu at Lam in Guntur district on Thursday.

LAM (GUNTUR DIST.): The State will have three regional development boards as and when they are formed with equal share of funding for activities ensuring equitable growth in the three regions, the Chief Minister, Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy, said here on Thursday.

Quelling the rumours that only one regional development board would be set up for Telangana, he told reporters at a press conference here after addressing farmers at a two-day Rythu Sadassu, that nothing concrete had been thought about it so far. The Government, however, believes in equality in development of all parts of the State, he added.

Condemning the killing of unarmed innocents branding them police informants by the naxalites belonging to the CPI (Maoist) and Janashakti groups, he said that the police were exercising utmost restraint, but might have to take harsher steps as per law if this continued.

The Maoists would lose sympathy among people in the rural areas if this trend continued and police would also take stern measures to ensure such incidents do not recur, but did not specifically mention about intensifying combing operations.

Political initiative

"The human rights activists raise a hue and cry about the so-called fake encounters, but keep mum on such incidents of mindless killings (indicating to the killing of six persons in Guntur district in one week)," he observed.

Talks with the Maoists were only a political initiative and it should not be confused with the police efforts, he said adding that maintaining Law and Order was an administrative measure, which had no relation with talks.

The Congress MLAs and other leaders from Palnadu region of Guntur district met the Chief Minister after the Rythu Sadassu at the ANG Ranga Agriculture University Research station guesthouse here and requested him to improve police protection for them so that they could work there more effectively.
