Warangal: A total of 2,729 ‘Palle Prakruthi Vanams’ (Village Natural Parks) were developed and thrown open to the public in erstwhile Warangal district, thanks to the State government’s innovative and unique programme aimed at improving the quality of life in rural areas.
“While we decided to develop 2,729 Palle Prakruthi Vanams in 71 mandals covering almost all the villages in erstwhile Warangal district, 2,685 (99.26 per cent) of them have been completed and made available to the public,” Minister for Panchayat Raj and Rural Development Errabelli Dayakar Rao said on Sunday, adding that they would soon take up development of ‘Bruhat Palle Prakruthi Vanams’ (big parks) in the 71 mandals at an estimated cost of Rs 28.40 crore.
“We have already identified 10 acres of land in the headquarters of each mandal. If sufficient or suitable land is not available in the mandal headquarters, we have selected one of the major Gram Panchayats from the same mandal to develop the Bruhat Vanams,” he said.
The officials are planning to plant nearly 31,000 saplings of different types in each Bruhat Palle Prakruthi Vanam to develop greenery.
“The land acquisition for the Bruhat Palle Prakruthi Vanams has already been completed in the erstwhile district following the directions of Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao, and the works will commence soon,” Rao said, adding that every village would greet visitors with beautiful parks.
