CM instructs officials to prepare comprehensive plan for water supply

Agency News

Hyderabad, Sep 19 : 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 in Legislative Assembly segments under the combined Nizamabad district.

Since there is 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, Mr Rao said during a meeting with the Legislators from the combined Nizamabad district in the Chamber of Speaker P Srinivas Reddy in Assembly premises here.

The Chief Minister said in order to solve 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 next and discuss the matter with people.

The Chief Minister said since SRSP is linked to the Kaleswaram Project, there would not be any problem to the SRSP Ayucut (lands irrigated under the project) in future.

He said irrigation water should be supplied to Armoor, Balkonda and Banswada Assembly segments through the Lifts as is done at Gutpa and Ali Sagar. (UNI)
