WARANGAL: BC Welfare minister Baswaraju Saraiah has said that they would hold a review meeting and take up works that would last long after Medaram jatara.

“There were several suggestions from the elected representatives on the jatara arrangements and taking them into consideration, we will think about the permanent facilities,” he said.

The minister was speaking at a seminar on ‘Medaram jatara-Historic, Cultural Analysis’ held here on Sunday under the joint aegis of the Information and Public Relations Department and Indian National Trust for Art and Cultural Heritage (INTACH).

The government, he said, had sanctioned `60 crore for the jatara this year.

The tribals would be given land elsewhere, he added.

Prabhakar Reddy said that around 1 crore tribals throng Medaram for the jatara.

Through a PowerPoint presentation, he explained about a bridge built on Jampanna vagu and a traffic control room set up at the village in a short span of 36 days during his tenure as the collector.

NIT professor Jaya Kumar made a PowerPoint presentation on the pollution problems that crop up due to the heavy turnout of pilgrims.

KU professors A Sitaram Naik, P Hymavati, Gaddam Venkanna, journalist S Mohan rao and others also spoke.
