Nizamabad: District Superintendent of Police S Chandrasekhar Reddy on Saturday launched the renovation works of Bichchalakunta tank, which the police department adopted in Nagepur Panchayat under Naveepet police station limits under the Mission Kakatiya Programme. Speaking on the occasion, he called upon the people to conserve every drop of water as advocated by Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao as water resources were depleting fast. Farmers in the district are badly hit by drought and therefore water has to be conserved, he added.
The Superintendent of Police performed Bhumi Puja for the tank restoration works. Later, he dug up the soil with the help of an excavator and loaded it on the tractor. He said if there were sufficient quantities of water available in ponds and tanks, the yield of crops would improve. Even the cattle requires water, he added.
The police department has been lending support to the government’s initiative by adopting ponds. Undertaking repairs to tanks and ponds was vital for development of agriculture and beneficial to the farmers, he added.
The police department has adopted ponds and tanks for development under the flagship programme Mission Kakatiya with a service attitude, he said exhorting people to dig rainwater harvesting pits.
He said that the tank restoration works were being carried out as part of the Mission Kakatiya programme and with the advent of monsoon, the ponds and tanks get filled up with water leading to increase in the level of the ground water table, he said.
Nizamabad DSP Anand Kumar, Rural Circle Inspector of Police G Venkateswarlu, Naveept Sub-Inspector of Police B Ravinder Naik, TRS district unit president Ganga Reddy and others took part in the tank reclamation programme.
