VIJAYAWADA: Four foreign students, who were arrested on Sunday for slitting the throat of a villager, were on Tuesday remanded to judicial custody for two weeks. They were sent to the Rajamahendravaram Central Jail.
The students had a heated argument with a lorry driver, Burdagunta Sunil (22), while having drinks at a wine shop and bar in Vaddeswaram near Tadepalli in Guntur district. In the ensuing scuffle, they attacked Sunil and one of them slit his throat. Irate villagers then thrashed the students, injuring one of them severely. The condition of Sunil and the injured student, Fatalla Mohammad Hussain from Sudan, is said to be critical. Salman Al Zabri of Tanzania slit the villager’s throat with a knife with the help of his friends -- Omar Ishak Mustafa Abudaz of Jordan, Fatalla Mohammad Hussain of Sudan, who is a student of Nova College in Ibrahimpatnam, Al Basheer Mohammad Albasheeb of Tanzania, a KLU student, and Christopher Mess of Tanzania, also studying at KLU.
RAJAMAHENDRAVARAM : The Godavari Head Works (GHW) has evolved a plan of action to supply adequate quantity of irrigation water to the farm land in the delta region for Rabi. A total of  82 tmc water is required to irrigate 8.6 lakh acres in the Godavari delta in Rabi season.  

Plans are afoot to draw 35 tmc water from Sileru. The remaining 47 tmc water is drawn from the Godavari and its affiliated irrigation sources. The capacity of Dowleswaram barrage pond is 3 tmc. All the 175 gates of Sir Arthur Cotton Barrage remain closed now to maintain the water level in the pond.

Speaking to TNIE here on Monday, GHW Executive Engineer N Krishna Rao allayed the fears of farmers of the delta region that they may not get adequate irrigation water in Rabi like last season. The GHW has taken measures to ensure supply of adequate irrigation water to the delta region, including tail-end areas. 

Dredging operations in the river and strengthening of irrigation canals help increase the  storage of Godavari river water. The river is likely to get adequate inflows from its catchment areas this season though the water level is low in Godavari at present. The Water Resources Department will leave no stone unturned to provide irrigation facility to the entire ayacut in Rabi, the EE said.
VIJAYAWADA : The Andhra Pradesh Tourism Development Corporation (APTDC) has signed a PPP agreement with Watersports Simple India Private Limited, authorising the latter to operate its boats in coastal AP. 

APTDC Chairman V Jayaram Reddy and Managing Director M Girija Shankar exchanged the agreement copies with Watersports India Executive Director Tarun Kakani.

Girija Shankar said: “The initiative has a potential to attract tourists to tourist locations in AP. The move will surely enthuse the youth.”

Kakani said: “Watersports India promoted by US investor Paparao Gummadapu, is already operating boats in Machilipatnam and Rajahmundry. With the signing of the agreement, we can now operate our boats and conduct adventure sports at Bhavani Island, Punnami Ghat and Krishnaveni Motel at Seethanagaram.

The company has imported boats from Florida, which include luxury pontoons, livingstone cruise boats, porta boats and hobie kayaks. Inflatable speed boats are also among the fleet, which can be used for rescue operations in emergencies. The safety standards of the boats are world class, he claimed.

Director of Tourism Himanshu Shukla and Watersports GM Ramakrishna said the operation of boats and promotion of adventure sports in major tourist locations in the State will help generate employment for the local youth.


Warangal: While the excessive use of social network sites by youngsters is raising many an eyebrows over its largely condemned disadvantages and the number of cyber crimes is growing by the day, a group of young people is setting an example of how such platform can be turned into an appropriate area for philanthropy. 

A Facebook friends’ group titled ‘Naughty girls … Crazy Boys’, founded on January 11, 2015, and enjoying a membership of over one lakh, became a very useful platform to extend a helping hand to the aged, the orphaned and the physically challenged. The group was floated by Harsha of Bhadrachalam who is pursuing post-graduation in Rajahmundry

The group members meet once in six months and as a mark of their assembly they lend support to the poor and disadvantaged sections of society and become relatives of the orphaned. They regard themselves as elder brothers or elder sisters of the orphaned and play with them, dine with them and fulfill their needs. They distribute clothes, books and other goods which the orphans need.

According to Harsha, goods worth Rs 1 lakh were distributed among the orphans so far. According to Pardhu, a member of the group from Hyderabad, the members have qualifications right from graduation to doctorate. There are some professional graduates and postgraduates in the group, who also support physically challenged in Warangal distributing among them various implements.

The Facebook group received an overwhelming response from people requiring it to divide the members into Visakhapatnam, Rajahmundry, Bhadrachalam, Hyderabad, Warangal and Karimnagar zones. Another group member Prasannasaid the service activities of the group would spread far and wide beginning from Rajahmundry and Warangal. She said the group members would formulate programmes to serve the society. 

Tanusri of Rajahmundry said she had become a member of the group at the behest of others. She was not familiar with anyone of the members till she met some of the group members in Warangal. Anji of Karimnagar said to demonstrate the fact that youth could achieve anything, many more programmes for the disadvantaged would be implemented. 

Another member Shyam of Warangal said each member was contributing Rs 500 or Rs 1,000 to implement service activities. Let us hope that friends brought together by this powerful social media would become instruments of change and serve as a source of inspiration for the youth.

    MLA Akula says gold purchased after Nov 8 will be scrutinized and ornaments earned through honest means will remain untouched 
-    Accuses opposition parties and some bureaucrats of trying spread false rumours 
-    Announces that PM will initiate more reforms to take the country in a new direction post Dec 31

Rajamahendravaram: BJP MLA Dr. Akula Satyanarayana alleged that some corrupt bureaucrats and politicians are creating upheaval over the gold regulations and the Centre is very clear on this issue. 

He maintained that the Gold Act is very old one and the government is going to assess the gold purchased only after November 8. 

Addressing a press conference here on Friday, Dr. Akula says that some stash holders converted their black money into gold after PM announced demonetisation on November 8 for the few days after note ban. However, he assured that gold owned by any individual through honest means will remain untouched.

He rubbishes rumours spread by vested interests that PM will usurp gold or gold ornaments owned by one and all as claimed by opposition parties and some highly corrupt officials and politicians.

He reiterated that middle and lower middle class people should not fear anything about their gold in lockers as it was kept before November 8 and it might be ancestor’s property. 

The MLA advised that the gold which is going to be purchased more than rules and regulations to be shown in tax returns. He clarified that those who try to convert cash into gold will be taken to task by the IT officials. He also predicted that Prime Minister will come out with more reforms and it will take the country in right direction from December 31.
