Nalgonda: Irrigation Minister T Harish Rao and Energy Minister G Jagadish Reddy on Thursday inaugurated the newly-built Rythu Bazaar at Nalgonda.
Speaking on the occasion, Harish said construction work for Mosambi (sweet lime) market will be completed by November 5 and will be ready for use in the town. “We are happy to complete the works of Rythu Bazaar by spending Rs 75 lakh.
The State government will provide market facility for a wide variety of crops, including sweet lime, lemon and Ivy guard,” he said. The Minister said the construction works of the markets were going on and would be ready in a couple of months or so.
He also said they have increased storage capacity by 2.35 lakh metric tonnes which is 20 times higher than earlier in the district. In the town alone, the godown capacity was increased to 10,000 metric tonnes from 1,000 metric tonnes, he said, adding that they would construct 23.5 lakh metric-tonne capacity godowns in the district in three years.
While the farmers used to stage protests for power supply, now the TRS government was giving them 24 hours power for agricultural operations while the former were seeking only 12 hours power supply, he claimed.
The officials were directed to complete the Udayasamudram Lift Irrigation scheme on war foot which has been pending for decades. “Plans are ready to complete all the irrigation projects in the district,” he said. Harish asked the officials to send proposals for a mini tank bund at Muthireddy Kunta.
Stating that the opposition parties would not get their deposits in the next general elections, Jagadish slammed the Congress leaders for remaining tight-lipped when Andhra rulers were shifting Nagarjunasagar waters to their region.
“The Opposition parties are trying to stall every scheme and programme for political benefits,” he alleged. MPs B Narsaiah Goud, Gutha Sukhender Reddy and others took part in the programme.
