Lockdown: Visakha Agency MLA rides horse to distribute essentials
Coming to know about difficulties being faced by tribal people residing in 300 hamlets in Paderu Assembly constituency in Visakhapatnam district, Paderu MLA K Bhagyalakshmi decided to meet the people by riding on a horse as the roads are in a bad shape. The roads were not laid as the villages are Maoist-affected. Tribals were unable to get essential commodities due to closure of weekly markets because of lockdown. The MLA carried essentials along with her and distributed them in the tribal hamlets. Even though she was scared of riding a horse, Bhagyalakshmi dared to meet the constituency people.
