Hyderabad: Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao would don the role of a ‘teacher’ as he prepares himself to present a detailed study on the status of irrigation sector in Telangana on two giant LED screens in the Legislative Assembly on Thursday. Perhaps, KCR is the first Chief Minister in the country who is making a PowerPoint presentation on an issue in the august house.
Temporary changes are being made in the house for the CM’s presentation. Two screens would be installed in the two cabins (allotted to officials and secretariat staff) adjacent to the Speaker’s Chair. Two video cameras in addition to the existing four cameras in the House would be used to cover the event.
Rao would make his presentation using a laptop and a remote from his seat. All the data used by the Chief Minister in the presentation would be given to legislators in a USB pen drive. Officials said after the presentation, members would be allowed to seek clarifications and raise doubts on the irrigation sector and the Chief Minister would clear doubts raised by any member.
"The Chief Minister’s vision to create one crore acre of fresh ayacut in Telangana, the necessity to redesign and re-engineer pending projects, information of water resources available in the Telangana from River Godavari and River Krishna and its tributaries, illegal construction of barrages by neighbouring Maharashtra and Karnataka across these rivers and its impact on the state in the area of irrigation would be explained," said an official.
The reasons for reducing the height of barrages being constructed on the Chevella- Kaleshwaram project with the support of Maharashtra and the action plan to create fresh ayacut in every assembly constituency in the next four years would be part of the presentation. Experts from irrigation and water resources managements would be invited to attend the PowerPoint presentation in the assembly. Opposition members have been requested to invite their party leaders to witness the historical event.
