The Chief Minister, who inaugurated several completed schemes that included the biggest 2BHK housing colony with 2,460 houses christened KCR Nagar, also laid the foundation stone for an IT Tower at Duddeda village in the district, strategically located close to Rajiv Rahadhari.

Chandrashekhar Rao, addressing a public meeting in Siddipet at the end of the day-long visit, pointed out that even before work on the IT Tower began, four US-based entrepreneurs from Siddipet — Ram Mattapally, Ashok Kumar Tattipally, Manohar Gachireddy and Ramakanth – had signed Memorandum of Understanding with the State government represented by IT and Industries Secretary Jayesh Ranjan.

Expressing his desire to see Siddipet emerge as a model town for the entire country, the Chief Minister announced Rs 100 crore for development of a tourism and convention centre in about 65 acres at Pallagutta Island in the middle of Ranganayaka Sagar reservoir. He also sanctioned Rs 80 crore for construction of Irikode Lift Irrigation Scheme meant for supply of irrigation water to a few villages spread over three Assembly constituencies that were left out under Kaleshwaram Lift Irrigation Scheme.

The Chief Minister appreciated the development works taken up at Komati Cheruvu and sanctioned another Rs 25 crore for further beautification and development of infrastructure including LED lighting, walking track, road works and other facilities.

Following requests from Finance Minister and Siddipet MLA T Harish Rao, Chandrashekhar Rao sanctioned another 1,000 new double-bedroom houses for Siddipet town and suggested that they be constructed adjacent to the double-bedroom housing colony inaugurated by him during the day at Narsapur. He also announced a Three Town Police Station, a basthi dawakhana and other infrastructure projects.

Chandrashekhar Rao also allocated Rs 160 crore for doubling the existing single-lane road covering the entire Assembly constituency and instructed the officials to develop a ring road connecting Rajiv Rahadari at two interjections near Ponnala and Duddeda. He also sanctioned a four-lane road from Siddipet to Illanthakunta, besides instructing the authorities to develop Ananthagiri project into a tourist spot.

Another Rs 50 crore was allocated for construction of an auditorium with a 2,000 seating capacity. Emphasising on the need for an integrated vegetable and meat market in the town centre, the Chief Minister announced Rs 25 crore for the project.
