Chief minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy in a review meeting with officials of the municipal administration and urban development department on Thursday proposed the scheme aimed at fulfilling the dream of middle class families to own a property without any legal disputes.

He directed the collectors to focus on underground drainage system along with other issues and develop infrastructure in YSR Jagananna colonies. Collectors were told to come up with innovative ideas to beautify the layouts and construct bus bays and bus stops creatively.

He said 17,000 revenue villages are there in the state and another 17,000 of them are being created. Parks, village, ward secretariats, village clinics should also be built in these colonies.

The officials said proposals are being prepared for six-lane beach road from Bhimili to Bhogapuram along the coast and a beautiful bridge will be built across Gostani river as part of the project. Jagan said the bridge would remain as iconic symbol for Visakhapatnam and directed the officials to prepare a comprehensive action plan for the project.
