WARANGAL: Several government departments are awaiting the approval of the state government to take up development works at Inavolu Mallikarjuna Swamy temple ahead the jatara which will begin from January 12, 2015. Though the district administration has sent proposals worth a whopping `6 crore through various departments to the state government, it has sanctioned only `1.11 crore to the Panchayat Raj department to take up road construction.

Though the officials wanted to construct bathing ghats at Vadlamani Kunta behind the temple for devotees who turn up in lakhs every year during the jatara, the Irrigation and CAD department officials are yet to get the nod for the works. At a meeting chaired by district collector G Kishan on December 17, officials proposed to take up works at an estimated `13 crore at the temple. But later the works were reviewed and reduced to `6 crore. Despite efforts from the collector and officials works may not be completed by January 5, since government has not approved several proposals.
