Coinciding with the Budget session of the Parliament, Prakasam Zilla Parishad chairman Edara Haribabu will lead a delegation of Zilla Parishad Territorial Constituency members from Prakasam district to New Delhi to impress upon the Centre to include the district in the list of backward districts for Central assistance.
“I am in touch with Minister Y.S. Chowdary and TDP MP from Bapatla Sriram Malyadri. We will do our best to get Special Development Package (SDP) for the backward district,” he told reporters here. Though Prakasam district remained in the third position after Adilabad and Mahabubnagar in backwardness in united A.P., it was left out when the list was finalised before the passage of the State Reorganisation Bill in Parliament.
