HYDERABAD: In tune with his decision to undertake visits to the rural areas to understand problems facing people, Praja Rajyam president Chiranjeevi will drive down to Polepalli in Mahabubnagar district.

It may be recalled that ever since land around the village was notified and carved into a special economic zone (SEZ), locals, primarily farmers had been expressing their protest and agitating against the government’s move.

In a bid to register their ire, they had even contested in the recent bypolls to the Jadcherla Assembly constituency.

In a bid to convince people that it was all for what it termed ‘rehabilitation’ of those displaced, the Congress government had even announced that it would take up a housing project at an estimated cost of Rs. 1.30 crore.

Mr. Chiranjeevi had undertaken a surprise visit last week to Sircilla in Karimnagar district, where he spent some time with the families of four weavers who had committed suicide, reeling under the burden of debt.

He had indicated that he would go on such visits to other parts of the State too and understand people’s problems better.
