Hyderabad | 11th January 2018
Telangana Irrigation Minister T Harish Rao today said that the Kaleshwaram waters would be released for crops in Bhupalapally by the monsoons.
The minister was inspecting canal modernization and repair works of the SRSP Flood Flow Canal project worth Rs 103 crores at Regonda mandal along with Deputy Chief Minister K Srihari, Finance Minister E Rajender, Speaker S Madhusudhana Chary and others.
Addressing a meeting after laying the foundation stone for the DBM-38 canal modernisation related works, Rao said that the project would be completed in just 20 months against the seven to eight years usually taken for such projects.
The CWC team, too, had appreciated the Kaleshwaram project for the speed and quality of works taken up, he said.
The minister further said that upon the completion of the project the Devadula waters would be given for second crops and to fill lakes in a quest to revive rural irrigation and economy.
Rao also said that the state government was proving that it was all for helping the farmers by timely completion of the project. He added that another farmer-friendly initiative of the government had been providing the agricultural sector with 24-hour power supply free of cost. He said that farmers in Telangana were fortunate, and would have even better days once the Rs 4,000 per acre scheme started.
Slamming the previous Congress regime for ignoring development projects and the farm sector, he said that now that the TRS government was spending huge funds on irrigation and power projects, the former was making allegations against them only to obstruct works. He expressed hope, however, that despite such gimmicks by the Opposition, the TRS would be in power in the state for at least another 20 years.
