I would like to high light the developmental issues like school and drinking water at my native village Malkangiri Village,Basheerabad Mandal ,Ranga Reddy Dist -A.P,which is about 130 KM from Hyderabad.
The education is important sector for any flourishing economy,poor educational infrastructure facilities in villages indeed a negative point in development index.
Due to educational backwardness, the village is lagging behind socially as well as economically,poor people adopt superstitious practices,Chetabadi and witchcraft as well as casteism rampant among the people.
More over ,the number of crimes has increased over the last decade due to our poor conviction rate in the courts[poor criminal justice system],corruption in police&local administration,witness turning hostile [poor moral ðical accountability among people,won over with money or fear of physical attacks or property loss]and lack of fear of punishment among the people[Rape,Murder,Theft,Property-related offencesi.e endowment lands &private property encroachments,family disputes abduction,suicides,cheating,illegal Arrack sale ,cases were reported last 15-20 yrs,the number of school drop outs and college drop out increased over the years,it also reflect poor educational levels of the village ,more over unemployment among youth increased,it is pertinent to say that only education can empower the people from the darkness and build social awareness.

|Local MLA inaugurated the water tank in 2011 , poor yet to get a bucket of water from tank ,Tank now a ornamental piece of the village|
Since 2004-2013 the issue of water tank pending ,its reflect apathy of governmental authorities and people representatives like M.L.A &M.P.
I gave several representations and also filed RTI applications to concerned authorities they acted halfheartedly to avoid a legal case ,but never solved the problem on permanent basis.The C.E.O ,Ranga Reddy Zilla Parishad assured me that problem will be solved on permanent basis ,but still it is trapped in red tapism,authorities still dodging the issue.
|Only hand pump serving entire village water needs [population of 400 people mostly S.C/B.C community ] ]exists in the farm land of Damodhar Rao|
|S.C colonies still don't have taps &good sanitation|
|Now this hand pump has been restored after my representation.|
|people wait for MLA/MP /authorities to solve their problems at this rachabanda/chabutar|
|condition of internal road|

It is not an exaggeration to say shameless, greedy,immoral,unethical &corrupt leaders[neta's] and maladministration are main hurdles for the development of the villages in India.
