In what appears to be a move to popularise the party ahead of the elections in 2014, chief minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy has decided to ensure that there is visible development in towns and villages. He has asked the finance department to release Rs 1,000 crore to complete, on a war-footing, the works taken up to implement his assurances given during Indiramma Baata.

Having made 1,020 promises, the chief minister now wants officials to get cracking. Of the assurances, 428 relate to works in progress and 169 in the planning stage. And, 423 promises have been addressed, according to an official press release from the CM’s office on Friday.

Kiran asked the officials to complete the ongoing works  by the end of this month and the works under process by March 31. He said he would review the progress of all the works every month.

The chief minister made an extensive tour of 11 districts _ East Godavari, Srikakulam, Khammam, West Godavari, Kurnool, Mahbubnagar, Krishna, Prakasam, Medak, Rangareddy and Visakhapatnam _ as part of Indiramma Baata.

About Rs 1,000 crore from the Chief Minister’s Special Development Fund was released from the 2011-12 and 2012-13 budgets for implementing his other assurances made during Rachabanda and Prajapatham. He called for speedy establishment of hospitals, schools, ITIs, and hiring of the required staff.
