Panchayat Raj Minister Nara Lokesh will visit Delhi on Thursday. He will meet Vice President elect Venkaiah Naidu and Union Panchayat Raj Minister Narendra Singh Tomar. Lokesh will request the Minister to release Rs 1350 crore for the state under NREGS and Rs 600 crore under the labour budget. The previous state government gave wrong information to the Centre stating that road facility is available to 2,207 habitats.
