He said until recently Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao had annually sanctioned Rs 10 crore to his daughter and former MP K Kavitha in the name of Bathukamma festival but nothing has been done to the festival.
He said several tanks in the city were meant to celebrate the nature's festival and women folk used to celebrate the festival organising Bathukamma in their vicinity.
The Chief Minister promised to rejuvenate all such tanks which were destroyed in united AP. However, nothing has been done for the last six years, he said.
Laxman said that in the name of rejuvenating the tank the TRS government has launched Mission Kakatiya. But it ended up a commission earning schemes for those in the power than rejuvenating the tanks.
