Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao is striving hard for making farmer a king and as part of that, Kaleshwaram water is supplied to every acre of land. Since canals are lifeline to farmers which supply water to fields, he appealed that it is the responsibility of every person to keep the canals neat and clean without dumping waste and other trash into the canals.
