VIJAYAWADA : Chief Secretary Neerabh Kumar Prasad informed that the offices of Andhra Pradesh State Beverages Corporation Limited (APSBCL), mining department and CID were sealed to safeguard all crucial documents and records.

Disclosing that a report would be submitted to the Chief Minister after June 12 on the jungle clearance works taken up in the capital region, he said engineers would conduct structural assessment to take a call on the condition of the buildings that have been left unattended for the last five years.

He inspected Uddandarayunipalem where PM Modi laid the foundation stone for the construction of Capital Amaravati.
