NARASARAOPET: Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu assured full government support for the development of Narasaraopet town on all fronts.

Participating in the three-day centenary celebrations of Narasaraopet Municipality that began on Friday, Naidu said the celebrations should become a launching pad for heading towards a new chapter for transforming Narasaraopet town into a major city.

“Already, the town has witnessed a slew of developmental works like widening of roads, underground drainage system, LED bulbs, toilets to all households, beautification of burial grounds and other activities to a tune of Rs. 310 crore as part of the centenary celebrations, and the town will soon get some more developmental works,” Naidu said.

Congratulating the AP Legislative Assembly Speaker Kodela Sivaprasada Rao for taking initiatives aimed at development of Narasaraopet town, the Chief Minister said that the town had produced eminent personalities like former chief minister Kasu Brahmananda Reddy and Sringeri Mutt Pontiff and several others.

Maintaining that the state capital city of Amaravati would be one among the best 10 cities in the world, he said: “An outer ring road will come through Sathenapalle connecting Amaravati, which will provide enough scope for development of both Sathenapalle and Narasaraopet towns.” On the occasion, the Chief Minister announced upgrade of the Narasaraopet government hospital to a 300-bed super-specialty hospital, setting up an engineering college under the direct monitoring of JNTU Kakinada and also constructing a stadium in Narasaraopet.
