“Several letters were written by Dr Nagam Janardhan Reddy to start the works and complete the project as early as possible. On June 5, 2021, the State Govt. issued GO. Rt.No. 211 giving administrative approval and sanctioned Rs.76.95 crs for lift scheme and on June 18, 2022, the Municipal Administration Minister laid foundation and promised the project within six months. Dr Nagam Janardhan Reddy and other congress leaders went to observe the progress of the works. Meanwhile a few BRS leaders gathered and objected to the visit of Dr Nagam Janardhan Reddy and others and starting attacking the Congress workers and one among them RathlavathValya Naik (ST) was badly beaten up by Chinna Reddy, Mandal Vice MPP and his brother Krishna Reddy and Tirupathi Reddy, former sarpanch of Mahadevunipet and Srinvias Goud, present MPP attempted on the life by throttling with foot crushing the neck forcefully with legs.
