Channel: In a historic move, Kyathanpalli Municipality was renamed Ramakrishnapur Civic Body. A bill to this effect was approved by the Telangana Legislative Assembly on Tuesday.
Government Whip Balka Suman, expressing his delight at the approval, said Ramakrishnapur was once a bustling town with coal miners and their families residing there. The coal belt town was a place for the state policy of rulers belonging to Singareni Collieries Company Limited. But, it has lost its luster over time.
“However, the name change would help the city earn its glory. The purpose of the bill is to give a renaissance to the historic city. As per the wish of the residents, the name of Kyathanpalli civic body has been changed to Ramakrishnapur Municipality. It will allow the municipality to acquire an identity. The people of this city will no longer need to migrate to other parts,” Suman remarked.
The government whip said a host of development activities were being undertaken to beautify the city and improve basic amenities. He cited the beautification of crossroads, the establishment of a library, the widening of a road from Ramalayam to the Mancherial junction, the flight over of a bridge over a railway line, electric lighting, the integrated vegetable market, landfill and other facilities would help the city to protect its existence.
Suman thanked the Chief Minister of Telangana, K Chandrashekhar Rao, and the Minister of Municipal and Urban Administration, K Taraka Rama Rao, for bringing the bill to the Assembly and realizing the long cherished dream of the people of Ramakrishnapur.
Meanwhile, members of community organizations, trade unions and Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) activists celebrated the decision to rename the municipality. They broke crackers and handed out sweets to mark the occasion on different streets. They performed Ksheerabhishekam on a life-size flexible poster of the chief minister as a sign of gratitude.
City Chairman Jangam Kala, Vice President Sagar Reddy, TRS Party Leaders Sammaiah, Azeej, Ramidi Kumar, Yakub Ali, City Councilors and many others were present.
