Leader of the House and Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao today announced that 1.25 crore acres would be brought under irrigation in the coming three years and that the State government was giving top priority to it.
Replying to the debate in the Assembly on the fourth day of the session on the motion of thanks to the Governor's address, KCR vowed to complete all the irrigation projects on time.
"So far we have spent Rs 1.17 lakh crores on the ongoing irrigation projects in the State," he said. "We are moving ahead with a plan to make total use of the waters allocated to the State, and we will complete all projects as per the plan," he said.
He added that roads were the second priority for his government and that all the roads in the gram panchayats would go BT in two years. The officials had been instructed to lay roads in all the villages as per the TRS manifesto promises, he said.
The State government would also keep all the other promises made, too, he said.
"The Governor's speech was right and the TRS will keep all the promises made to the people. We will waive off 100% of all crop loans upto Rs. 1 lakh as we promised, either in phases or in one go. A study will be conducted to finalize the number of unemployed youth in the State to give them the promised allowances. For development works about Rs 4 lakh crores to Rs 5 lakh crores will be spent. The Opposition members should not lose patience as the government is planning to implement the schemes one after another in a phased manner. We will earn revenue and spend a total of Rs 10 lakh crores in the next five years," he said.
