Happiest Moments


2007 - Bridge

Bridge had been a dream to Munnangi people for more than 30 years. Our beloved MLA Gudibandi Venkata Reddy has talked to Minister JC Divakara Reddy and CM Dr. YS Raja Sekhara Reddy and sanctioned the Bridge for Munnangi. With the help of our village people, Bridge was finished in record time. This has been a great achievement and great moment for Munnangi. Munnangi Bridge is opened by Honarable Minister JC Divakara Reddy on Feb 02, 2009


1973 - ZPH School

Mr. Bonthu Gopala Reddy (MLA) has worked hard and got ZPH School for Munnangi. This has been a great help for students of Munnangi. Before that students have to walk more than 2 KM to Vallabhapuram from 8th grade onwards. Very few people used to travel that far and girls did not use to go at all. After this school was built, most of the students started studying up to 10th grade. This has been very helpful to our neighboring villages Pidaparru and Danthuluru also.


1967 - Nagarjuna Sagar Dam

Nagarjuna Sagar Dam is certainly the pride of India, since it is the tallest masonry dam in the world. Since Nagarjuna Sagar dam was built, Munnangi has been receiving sufficient water for Paddy crop. This has helped people of Munnangi financially.
