Chief Minister Kirankumar Reddy announced today that the written examinations for the recruitment of SI posts would be held as scheduled.
Addressing a public meeting at the Medikonduru village in Guntur district this afternoon, Kiran Kumar said the welfare hostels of the SCs and STs would not be closed and the media had wrongly published the statement made by the minister concerned.
Earlier, the CM arrived at the Gannavaram airport in a special plane from Hyderabad. Kirankumar was originally scheduled to fly a helicopter but the officials cancelled the decision in the last minute due to inclement weather and advised the CM to take a special plane for the tour.
The CM will participate in several developmental programmes in the district and also lay the foundation stone for a new fruit and vegetable market in Guntur town.
