Hyderabad: Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao on Thursday instructed the officials concerned to prepare a comprehensive plan to supply water for irrigation and drinking purposes in all the villages under the combined Nizamabad district.
The chief minister had a meeting with the legislators from the combined Nizamabad district in the chamber of Telangana State Legislative Assembly Speaker P Srinivas Reddy in the Assembly premises here.
He said since there was less availability of water in Nizamsagar and Singur projects this year, villages under the jurisdiction of these projects should be supplied water through alternative methods and the officers should prepare alternative/temporary plans.
KCR stated in order to resolve the issues pertaining to irrigation water, drinking water and Podu Bhoomulu (lands under shifting cultivation) he would visit the combined Nizamabad district for two days in the coming month and discuss the matter with the people.
Since SRSP was linked to the Kaleswaram Project, there would not be any problem to the SRSP Ayacut in future, KCR said and added irrigation water would be supplied to Armoor, Balkonda and Banswada Assembly segments through Lifts as was done at Gutpa and Ali Sagar.
The CM instructed the officials from the Irrigation department to get the survey done and prepare estimates, find out where to put the Lifts and to what extent of land water can be supplied in the villages.
