Karimnagar: Telugu Desam Party district president Ch Vijayaramana Rao demanded that the State government should make public the details of the agreement signed with the Maharashtra State government for the construction of different projects across River Godavari. Speaking to reporters here on Thursday, the TD district president said that Chief Ministers of united Andhra Pradesh Jalagam Vengalrao and N Kiran Kumar Reddy had reached an understanding with Maharashtra in 1978 and 2012 respectively.

“Where is the need to reach a fresh agreement,” he questioned. The previous Congress government has designed Pranahitha-Chevella project of 152 metre height with Rs 38,000 crore. However, the Telangana government has reduced the height of the project to 148 metre and raised the amount to Rs 80,000 crore.

Referring to Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao’s promise that water would be supplied to one crore acres by completing all the pending irrigation projects in two-and-half years, the TD leader said that not a single acre was given water though he completed two years in office.

“It requires 1,000 tmc to supply water to one crore acres and it was possible to provide water to 30 lakh acres if all pending and ongoing projects were completed,” he said and wondered as to how the CM would supply water to once crore acres. With a view to usurp money from contractors in the name of percentages, TRS government has started projects’ redesign programme.

Sri Ram Sagar Project serves an ayacut of about nine lakh acres, but the project has not received water from upstream due to the construction of Babli project in Maharastra, he said and blamed the CM for not raising the contentious Babli issue during the agreement.
