Launching the 45feet Mission Kakatiya Pylon at Madannapet in Warangal district, along with Minister Ajmeera Chandulal, Harish Rao said the State government’s mission to revive water sources was appreciated by one and all in the every nook and corner of the country.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi praised the the Mission Kakatiya. Though the Congress leaders in Maharashtra were opposing the irrigation project being constructed in the Tate, the BJP government led by Fadnavis was very cooperative in accommodative in facilitating new projects.
The Congress leaders from Telangana should impress upon AICC chief Sonia Gandhi to direct the Maharashtra Congress leaders not to create obstacles to the project. He also alleged that Telangana State detractors were trying to stall the project works.
The successive governments had miserably failed to focus on irrigation projects in State. “The peasant-friendly government in Telangana State will complete the projects on schedule to irrigate lands,” he vowed. Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao, he said, had sanctioned a whopping Rs 25,000 crore for irrigation project to turn the State into “Bangaru Telangana.”
“Our plan is to fill up Rangaiah lake in Narsampet with Godavari waters to bring under about 25,000 acres under irrigation. After necessary repairs, Pakala lake will be filled with Devadula project waters to distribute waters for second crop and construct 12 check dams.”
