Titli cyclone severely affected people in around 25 mandals and 1000 plus villages in Srikakulam in second week of October, 2018. People lost their livelihood especially agriculture lands, their houses got damaged and deprived of basic needs like water. This area is also prone to contaminated ground water and lack of proper basic water infrastructure like bore wells and treatment facilities to supply potable drinking water.
Janasena party under able leadership of Pawan Kalyan garu intensively travelled in these areas immediately after cyclone and understood basic needs and encouraged donors to come forward. In this context, Allu Arjun garu came forward to support this noble cause and donated 3 RO (Reverse Osmosis) water plants and 1 bore well in 4 villages (Kondalogam, Devunalthada, amalapadu and Polladi of mandasa and Vajrakotturu mandals in Srikakulam district). These needs and villages are thoroughly examined for ground water quality and felt necessity of relevant rural potable water supporting structures.
Villagers expressed their happiness over this deed of Sri Allu Arjun garu. It is expected that these 3 RO water plants and 1 bore well are installed in next 15 days and support daily drinking water needs of 2000 to 3000 people in and around 2 to 3 villages and protect their right to have good water and health. Since these areas are more prone to chronic kidney diseases due to contaminated ground water, these RO plants would support local communities from this dreadful ailments.
