YSR condemns terror attacks on Mumbai
‘Country should remain united’
Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy has condemned and expressed shock over the “senseless killing of innocent people” in “obnoxious” terrorist attacks in Mumbai, “the financial nerve centre,” on Wednesday night.
Talking to media persons here on Thursday, Dr. Reddy, who was waiting for an appointment with Congress president Sonia Gandhi, said it was a time when the entire country should remain united and defeat the nefarious designs of the enemies of the country.
He praised the police for their “heroic” fight against the heavily armed terrorists and sacrifice made by the senior officers.
“The entire country is behind them and I wish them all the success in the ongoing operations to save innocent hostages and to flush out the terrorists. I appeal to the people to remain united in this hour of crisis and teach a befitting lesson to the terrorists and their mentors,” he said.
Later Dr. Reddy left for Hyderabad as Ms. Gandhi was preoccupied with Mumbai developments.
Medak gears up for YSR’s visit
Administration to impress the Chief Minister with five initiatives
Manjira Sanitation, Grama Darshini, Mana Ooru, Arogya Kshemam and Manjira Samkshema Baata
Manjira Sanitation inititated in the district with an eye on Nirmal Gram Puraskar Awards
As the stage is set for the visit of Chief Minister Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy to the district on Friday, the administration has completed all arrangements.
To impress Mr. Rajasekhara Reddy, the officials made arrangements to present five initiatives before him. They are – Manjira Sanitation, Grama Darshini, Mana Ooru, Arogya Kshemam and Manjira Samkshema Bata.
With an eye on the Nirmal Gram Puraskar Awards, the administration had initiated the Manjira Sanitation programme across the district. While Osmannagar was awarded the state second in sanitation programme recently, the administration has been making efforts to implement total sanitation in some mandals.
Grama Darshini is aimed at addressing the problems at mandal and village level, where a designated special officer will be present every Friday. Officials will check the implementation of programmes at village level and initiate action wherever required.
Mana Ooru is another innovative programme where a committee consisting of public representatives and officials will be constituted to address the problems at village level.
Here the public representatives work as pressure group to get the works done.
Arogya Kshemam is one more programme aimed at addressing the problems of the patients who were referred to the corporate hospitals under Arogyasri but have not availed any surgical intervention.
Under this scheme, the administration is supplying medicines with a cap of Rs. 10,000 to each patient.
While four initiatives have been conceived by Collector Peeyush kumar, Superintendent of Police Mohd Iqbal has taken up the task of setting right the things at government hostels.
Moved with that, the Collector announced launching of Manjeera Samskhema Bata in which industrialists are being requested to lend a helping hand to the students studying there.
All these schemes are being implemented successfully.
YSR’s picture on website defaced
Offenders introduce abusive words
Defaced sites restored by experts
Unidentified cyber offenders defaced the picture of Chief Minister Y. S. Rajasekhara Reddy figuring in the home page of the State government’s portal (www.aponline.gov.in) as also the descriptive lines underneath, late on Wednesday night when high voltage drama was taking place in Mumbai.
The offenders introduced abusive words against the Chief Minister in place of the descriptive lines. The picture of the Chief Minister and Ministers figure in home page under the caption “Council of Ministers”.
The offenders also defaced brief news items put on the website, specifying the day’s announcements and developmental initiatives taken by the government, replacing them with their address “Zombie KSA”, a Pakistan hacker group.
All the defaced sites, however, were restored to their original shape by these experts a little after office hours on Wednesday, said a senior official in the Information Technology & Communications department.
