HYDERABAD: A high-level review meeting on arrangements for Maha Shivaratri celebrations in Vemulawada was held by Municipal Administration and Urban Development (MA&UD) Minister KT Rama Rao where he said that Vemulawada, prominently known as Dakshin Kashi, would be developed as grandly as the Yadadri temple.

The status of the ongoing development works in the town too were discussed. The meeting was held along with Vemulawada MLA Chennamaneni Ramesh Babu in Hyderabad on Tuesday.

KTR asked officials to make all necessary arrangements for devotees, who would visit the temple from various parts of the State and the country, to have a pleasurable experience. Also, he asked them to focus on management of sanitation in the town and to arrange ambulance services, take fire safety measures on a precautionary note. The Minister said that the annual cultural programmes, held during Maha Shivaratri celebrations, were to be organised on a grand scale in coordination with the State Culture Department.

Stating that Sircilla and Vemulawada would emerge as tourist destinations, the MA&UD Minister asked officials to chart plans for development works in that direction. He said that the tallest idol of Lord Shiva, construction of cottages, adventure games would be taken up at Ramappa Gutta in the suburbs of Sircilla. Cable car services would be arranged at Nampally Gutta in Vemulawada Suburbs.

KTR asked officials to lay footpaths alongside all main roads in the town leading to the temple, to spruce up the town with wall paintings at all places feasible to display the art, and to lay cycling track and walking track alongside ‘Moola Vagu’. He said that the mini-stadium being constructed in Vemulawada would be completed soon.
