NAGASAMUDRA: Infrastructure development sprang to life and officials were busy sanitising  the village and relaying roads in this remote village of Molakalmur taluk on Friday, ahead of AICC president Sonia Gandhi’s visit.

Sonia, who will arrive here via chopper at 9:30 am, will visit the parched Nagasamudra tank; she will interact with people, before leaving the district at 10:20 am.

Villagers are enthused at Sonia’s visit and wish that her visit will be a harbinger of progress. One Honnuramma told Express,  “Our repeated requests to the administration for road repair went unheard; to our surprise, officials are working day and night to get the roads relaid.”
