Hyderabad: The Governments of Telangana and Maharashtra will sign a final accord on irrigation projects in about ten days time to pave the way for taking up irrigation projects on the Godavari river. “This (the final accord) will help in realising the dream of the government to make the Telangana drought-free,” said Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao on Friday.
Participating in the Ugadi celebrations at Ravindra Bharathi here on Friday, the Chief Minister said that the state has already achieved two of the three main objectives of the Telangana struggle. “The problem of funds has been resolved since the revenue earned is now being spent for the development. The state has achieved 15 percent growth rate.
Soon it would also overcome the problem of unemployment as the vacancies are being filled up. We are working towards a ‘Bangaru Telangana’ where no farmer will commit suicide. Mission Kakatiya and Mission Bhagiratha would help the government in achieving such goals,” he said.
Referring to the predictions by Vedic scholar Bachampalli Santosh Kumar Sastry during the Durmukhi Nama Samvatsaram, the Chief Minister said the almanac predicts bright future for the new state, but at the same time it had sounded a note of caution for two departments, education and health. The Chief Minister said there was nothing to be scared about. The ministers concerned should be more alert and see that nothing goes wrong.
“Predictions in the almanac should be treated as a planner for the entire year. Based on the predictions one should chalk out an action plan,” he said. Making the predictions, Santosh Sastry said that Telangana would receive good rain and prosper under the leadership of Chandrasekhar Rao. “The rulers will be able to fulfil their promises and Telangana will attract lot of investments. Women will play an increasingly important role in all fields,” he said.
KCR also released a magazine called ‘Tolipoddu’, which was written by renounced scholars of Telangana and felicitated vedic scholars, artistes, writers and other personalities. Union Minister Bandaru Dattatraya, Deputy Chief Ministers Mahmood Ali and Kadiyam Srihari, Legislative Assembly Speaker Madhusudhana Chary, Legislative Council Chairman M Swamy Goud, cabinet ministers and senior officials also participated in the celebrations.
