Ground report: Current state of Sachin’s adopted village Puttamraju Kandrika


How is Sachin adopted Puttamraju Kandrika village now

The Puttamraju Kandrika village in the Nellore district of Andhra Pradesh was adopted by Sachin Tendulkar in 2014 and he undertook various development works completed at a cost of Rs 2.79 crore under his MP Local Area Development Scheme (MPLADS) funds. He also distributed cricket kits among the village youth and interacted with a few families about the development of the village. But how is the village now, after these many years. One picture speaks 1000 words..Let’s have a look…

Though the intention is good, the implementation is not up to the expectations. Media, as called 4th estate in democracy, also has a special role to play in democracy. Most of the media highlights when Sachin visits or Chamundeswarinath organizes an event to give gifts. But the same media could allot a few minutes of screen space to do a special focus on such villages so that corrective actions are taken by the concerned. But unfortunately media gives lot of hype and coverage only when the sport star visits and doesn’t bother at other times.
