The concerned officers have kept themselves busy in doing arrangements as AP CM Jagan' s three-day visit to Kadapa starts today.
The long-pending dream of Kadapa to have a steel plant so as to address unemployment and migrations in search of jobs, is all set to realize. Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy will lay the foundation stone for the steel plant - AP High-Grade Steel Corporation on Monday.
It is the third time that the foundation stone for a steel plant is being laid. Former Chief Ministers YS Rajasekhara Reddy and N Chandrababu Naidu had laid the foundation stone for the steel plant at two different locations in the district, but unfortunately, they failed to materialise.
The signing of MoU with NMDC for the supply of iron ore to plant makes people hopeful of realising their long-cherished dream and the locals have a hope that the third time might prove lucky for them.
The steel plant located between Sunnapurallapalle and Peddanandaluru villages in Jammalamadugu mandal of the Kadapa district expected to start production in three years and create direct and indirect employment for 20,000 people.
