Ever since the then Telugu Desam government declared Medaram Samakka Saaralamma Jathara as a state festival, in 2002, and over Rs. 350 crores were spent up till now on development works, there is no sign of it at the pilgrim centre, devotees, who are pouring in, said. There is drinking water shortage and bathing ghats are not ready. It is heard that the funds have gone in to the pockets of the contractors.
