Andhra state governmenA team of Andhra Pradesh state government led by Deputy Speaker Mandali Buddha Prasad inspected the islands of the Nagayalanka mandal for developing them into tourist attractions.

 
Mr. Buddha Prasad was accompanied by Tourism Department Executive Director Mallikarjuna Rao and local revenue and forest officials. The team inspected around five islands between the Nagayalanka mandal headquarters and the Gullalamoda lighthouse at the confluence point of River Krishna with the Bay of Bengal.

 
The State government aims to develop the islands in the wake of the Central government’s plan to beautify the lighthouse under the Sagar Mala project. However, the State government would not include the Krishna Wildlife Sanctuary in it.

 
“Elukula Lanka has been found suitable to become the best location for the tourists. We want to change its name where resorts will be constructed,” said Mr. Buddha Prasad.
The islands would become prime tourist destination in the district due to the pristine beauty of the river and the backwaters.

 
The tourists are required to take a two-hour boat journey to cover the five islands. The confluence point would draw attention from across the country once the proposed missile testing launch facility at Gullalamoda, being developed by the Defence Research and Development Organisation, is commissioned.
