Village adoptions by Celebrities

AP governments campaign of adoption of villages and wards by celebrities for overall development has met with a severe setback.

While Nara Lokesh declared adoption of Nimmakur, NTRs native village in Krishna district, his wife Nara Brahmani has adopted the Naravaripalli village in Chittoor district.Same way Nandamuri Balakrishna has adopted Hindupur for all-round development.

All these appear to be a mode of quicker implementation of Government initiatives rather than spending their own money and they hardly spend a paisa from their pockets.

Even Cricket Sachin Tendulkar, a Rajya Sabha MP has also adopted a village Puttamraju Kandriga but he has a lot of land interests in the region with the support of his friend Chamunderswari, ex-team India manager.
