According to Municipal Administration Minister Mr. M. Mahidhar Reddy, the work on Ramayapatnam port in Prakasam district will begin in the New Year.
Mr. Reddy said the district was poised to witness tremendous growth on the industrial front with the coming up of the second major port in the State after Visakhapatnam.
A proposal for setting up a INR 3,000-crore industrial corridor was being considered, he added.
Development and welfare initiatives of the ruling Congress would help it score a hat-trick in the next general election, he said. The statutory backing given to the SC/ST sub-plans would boost the party’s prospects in future elections including the polls for cooperative bodies, he added.
