Karimnagar: Choppadandi MLA Bodige Shobha said that Bommalamma Gutta will be developed into a tourism destination. Speaking at the Padya Kavi Sammelanam (poets’ meet) organised by the district administration near Bommalamma Gutta at Kurikyala village under Gangadhara mandal on Wednesday, she referred Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao’s comments that Kanda Padyam , a prosodic form of Telugu poetry, had originated from Kurikyala village hundreds of years ago.

“A road at an estimated cost of Rs 2.77 crore has already been sanctioned. This apart, a stairway will also be a reality soon,” Shobha said, commending the district administration for organising poets’ meet in Kurikyala for the first time.

Revenue divisional officer Raja Goud said that the programme was aimed at highlighting the Telugu ahead of World Telugu Conference (WTC) scheduled to be held from December 15 to 19 in Hyderabad. I&PR Assistant Director N Venkateshwar Rao called upon the parents to inculcate zeal in Telugu language and culture among children.

After the poets read out their work, they were felicitated with shawls and mementoes. Kurikyala sarpanch Bhuma Goud, MPP Bala Goud, ZPTC Akula Srilatha, poets Dasyam Senadhipathi, Tula Rajender, Madishetty Gopal and Nalimela Bhaskar were among others present.
