Hyderabad: Namrata, wife of superstar Mahesh Babu on Friday promised to make Siddhapur, the village in Mahbubnagar district the couple have adopted, into a ‘smart village’.’
She visited Siddhapur following complaints from locals that the superstar hasn’t even bothered to visit it or make arrangements for providing even basic amenities as promised after adopting it last September.
Mahesh Babu never visited the village but only made an announcement, the villagers had complained.
After the huge success of his movie Srimanthudu that was based on adoption concept, the actor adopted two villages Siddhapur in TS and and Burripalem in Guntur of AP.
Namrata went round Siddhapur and attended a local medical camp organised for children below 14 years and other programmes. She said that they were trying to develop the village in all aspects on the lines of Burripalem.
“There will be health camps every three months for all. I will accompany Mahesh Babu here in the next two or three weeks. I have received complaints regarding drinking water shortage, lack of veterinary doctors and other issues from the sarpanch. I will speak to the collector and see that all grievances are redressed, she said.
Namrata also spoke to locals who complained of bad roads, drinking water shortage, dilapidated gram panchayat office, a local temple among others. She promised to resolve the issues at the earliest.
