Tourism, Culture and Youth Promotion Minister RK Roja said that the establishment of AlluriSitharamaRaju (ASR) district in the name of the revolutionary freedom fighter truly shows the Chief Minister’s love of Andhra Pradesh, YS Jagan Mohan Reddy, to the tribal people.
On Tuesday, the minister offered her prayers on the last day of the three-day “Modakondammajatara” in Paderu.
She said the festival was being held after a two-year hiatus following the Covid-19 pandemic, and was intended to showcase tribal culture and practices. The minister hoped that the goddess would shower her blessings on people and protect them.
Ms. Roja said the temple with a long history has been respected by both tribals and non-tribals. She said the Andhra government has approved a medical school, an engineering school and a super specialty hospital for the district, as well as cultivation rights for the tribal people, who have been cultivating land there for several years.
The Araku Valley in Andhra is known to tourists as the “Switzerland of the poor”. The valley boasts of natural beauty and the Borra Caves have a unique identity, attracting tourists from near and far. The Minister said that she will do everything possible for the development of tourism in the areas of the Agency in the best possible way.
