Speaking on the occasion, the Minister said that the Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu is working hard to complete the irrigation projects in the state over the last three years.
He said that the opposition leader Jaganmohan Reddy blamed the construction of Pattiseema Lift Irrigation Scheme when it was started and now it has begun feeding the Godavari water to Krishna Delta ayacut. “Now the Godavari water is reaching River Krishna and we are supplying the water to Krishna Delta farmers. Is Jagan seeing the water flow?’ he questioned.
