Injustice to the Town

    • Narasapur town lacked proper developemtnt in the fields of business, mainly due to the greed or negligence of the politicians. Narsapur was ideal choice for construction of Vasista bridge on Gadavari river, but the bridge location shifted 7 km away from Narsapur by the influence of politicians who were enjoying power in those days. As a result Palakol developed to a considerable extent. The life of petty businessmen in the Town became miserable after the floating population started travelling via Palakol. Major delay in the construction of Municipal shopping complex added more owes to the local vendors.
    • Narsapur is both Assembly and Parliamentary Constituency. But nobody in power has shown interest in lifting the town. Only during the last Gadavari pushkaram some roads were built, that too in the disguise of election campaign.
    • The current government is making a promise to construct a bridge in Narsapur, which seems to be more political stunt than a reality come true as next elections are nearing.
    • Moreover the central government is showing no interest in Kotipalli-Narsapur Railway line. Every year one can find a single line in Railway budget to study this project, but nothing materalized till now.
    • So far the town had seen many MPs, many times MLA who negelected the Constituency.
