He also wanted the district officials to take steps to start JNTU engineering classes from this academic year.

Asking officials to make arrangements to run classes in Agraharam Degree College on a temporary basis, Rao instructed revenue officials to identify land for construction of a permanent college building. The Chief Minister has assured to sanction a medical college to Sircilla in the next phase, he said.

Both Sircilla and Vemulawada towns would be developed as twin cities in the coming days, Minister said and wanted the municipal officials to develop model colonies in both the towns by identifying government lands. Ramappagutta area located near the backwaters of Mid Manair reservoir would be developed as a tourism spot and wanted the officials to examine the proposal to develop a bridge between Ramappatutta to Nampalligutta. Local youth would get employment with the establishment of food processing zone.

Rao instructed Irrigation Department officials to fill all 665 tanks with the water of Upper Manair, Mid Manair and Annapurna reservoirs. When officials were informed that 165 tanks were already filled, Minister directed officials to fill all remaining water bodies.
