Development eludes Medak district

R. Avadhani

SANGAREDDY: Though Medak is nearer to the State capital Hyderabad compared to other districts, as far as development is concerned neither the politicians nor the officials seem to be least bothered about the district. In many places, people are left to their fate, literally.

Lack of roads

Take the case of Kangti mandal under Narayanakhed constituency. There are more than 30 thandas in the mandal and most of them lack any road facility. Leave about any four-wheeler, not even a two-wheeler or three-wheeler can travel on the road.

If someone falls sick, people have to carry them on a cot for a few kilometres, a fact known to everyone in the area, including elected public representatives and officials. Being rainy season, such incidents occur frequently while officials go about claiming that everything is in place to prevent any untoward incidents.

Some thandas do not have any water facility and are dependent on ponds, lakes or other such sources. As there is no pumping into tanks and chlorination, they consume the raw water, thereby falling prey to water-borne diseases. Though some thandas have Manjira pipeline, there is no proper supply.
