R Municipal Corporation begins silt cleaning work

Rajamahendravaram: Municipal Corporation additional commissioner NVV Satyanarayana Rao has said that the corporation was very much particular to clear the silt in underground drainages in connection with ensuing monsoon season.

Inaugurating the clearance of silt in underground drainage at Pushkar Ghat here on Thursday, he said silt will be cleared in ten days to the extent of 10 km starting from Aryapuram. Nearly 200 workers were engaged for this work and also using JCB and other machinery.
