NALGONDA: Finally, the district review committee (DRC) meeting of Nalgonda district was held on Sunday after a gap of eight months. According to rules, the DRC meetings should be held once in three months.

In-charge minister V Sunita Lakshma Reddy, who chaired the meeting, came late by an hour.

Soon the TDP and CPM MLAs flayed the government for not showing any interest in developing the district.

Later, Bhongir MLA A Uma Madhava Reddy  (TDP) and Alair MLA B Bikshamaiah Goud (Congress) complained that electricity officials were demanding bribes from villagers for installing transformers in rural areas.  Uma Madhava Reddy said that people in her village, Wadaparthy in Valigonda mandal, asked her to pay her share of  `2,500 towards installation of a new transformer in the village which got burnt. Goud too complained about a similar incident in his constituency.

To this, Transco SE Karunakar said that they would take action against employees demanding bribes for transformers.
