Speaking at a function to distribute Rs 53.6 lakh to 1165 children of the members of construction workers welfare board, the Chief Minister said he, along with Tourism Minister Malladi Krishnarao, met the Union Tourism Minister and requested for funds, which he agreed to provide, for the renovation of heritage buildings here and to develop tourism.
