HYDERABAD:The state government wants Lions Club International Foundation and Lions Clubs in Telangana to play a bigger role in reaching out to the rural areas.

Chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao has suggested to them to help the tribal people in Adilabad district who suffer from malnutrition. “Lions Clubs can do service to these tribals which will be a great help to them,’’ Rao said adding that they (tribals) had superstition and did not take medicine and the Lions Club can motivate them to take medicines. 

Rao was interacting with Lions Clubs International Foundation Chairperson Barry J Palmer who along with Lions Clubs past and present presidents of Secunderabad and Hyderabad and other parts of Telangana met him on Thursday and briefed him about their activities all over the country.

Palmer told Rao that the Lions Club would like to have a relationship with Telangana government and would like to take up projects in rural Telangana.  Palmer enquired about the priority areas of the state government in the fields of education, sanitation and others. He said that Lions Club is the world’s best NGO.
