Ms.Vijaya, who was recently elected unanimously as the ZP chairperson, took charge on Monday and revealed her action plan to take up developmental activities in all 38 mandals of the district.
“We will hold monthly reviews to observe the progress of all the works taken up by each department. It will certainly help us to know the ground situation and take up corrective measures. Along with local public representatives, including ZPTC members, we will take up field inspections. It will act as a deterrent and make officials meet the expectations of the government,” she told the media here.
