Showering sops: Irrigation to tail-end farmers under Sagar ayacut assures KCR


  • Sanctions Rs20 lakh to every village, Rs30 lakh to every Mandal; Rs25cr from CM Fund to Huzurnagar municipality and Rs15 cr to Nereducharla municipality; Praja Darbar on ‘podu bhumulu’ issue; Revenue division, ESI hospital and polytechnic college at Huzurnagar

Hyderabad: Huzurnagar Assembly constituency has received a series of boons doled out by Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao in return of a stupendous majority of over 43,000 votes in the by-election held on October 21. The Chief Minister promised to irrigate the last acre at the tail-end of Nagarjunasagar ayacut. Telangana has to get 107 tmc from Nagarjunasagar, but never received our due share in the project, said KCR, while promising to irrigate 1.25 crore acres in Telangana.

The Chief Minister further announced a series of boons to the Huzurnagar Assembly constituency.

Thanking the Huzurnagar Assembly voters for giving a remarkable majority to the TRS candidate Saidi Reddy, the Chief Minister promised to reward the constituency as an equal gift. The CM also congratulated Huzurnagar people for electing a right-right candidate as their MLA despite bad propaganda by the opposition parties.

The Chief Minister along with newly-elected MLA Shanampudi Saidi Reddy and other ministers participated in a thanks-giving public meeting at Huzurnagar on Saturday evening. Deputy Chief Minister Mahamood Ali, Ministers Jagadishwar Reddy, Satyavathi Rathod, party MLC Palla Rajeshwar Reddy, and other senior leaders participated at the meeting.

“Huzurnagar people taught opposition parties a lesson for projecting Saidi Reddy as a native of Guntur district. Huzurnagar Assembly constituency has 134 Gram Panchayats and seven mandals. I sanction Rs20 lakh to every village and Rs30 lakh to each MandalMandal. The state government will issue a GO in this regard immediately.

Further, I release Rs25crore from CM Fund to Huzurnagar municipality and Rs15 cr to Nereducharla municipality. Telangana government notified over 3,000 Lambada tandas as Gram panchayats. We have about 30 such tandas in Huzurnagar. We sanction a residential school for STs here and Banjara Bhavan at Huzurnagar. We have decided to hold Praja Darbars to resolve the Podu Bhumulu problem. Further, I also sanction a polytechnic college and revenue division for Huzurnagar.

With due consultation with the Centre, we try to get an ESI Hospital as several cement manufacturing units are located here,” promises KCR.

The Chief Minister said that Saidi Reddy also requested him for setting up a court at Huzurnagar. By consulting Chief Justice of High Court, the state government would set up a court at Huzurnagar, assured KCR.

The list of promises made by KCR includes two-bedroom flats also. Highlighting the long-pending problems of Nalgonda, KCR said that all the issues remain the same since he visited Gurrampodu village as drought minister in 1997.

The Rs30,000-cr Yadadri Ultra Mega Power plant coming up at Damaracharla near Yadadri will bring in an economic revolution in the district. The CM further expressed concerns over not getting the due share of Telangana in the Nagarjunasagar project. The left canal project will be taken using funds from IDC (Irrigation Development Corporation) as well.

“Nagarjunasagar project was earlier Nandikonda project. After several modifications and change of place, Nagarjunasagar project was built. Our share in the project is 107 tmc but never received. We have work on Nagarjunasagar left canal to irrigate agriculture land of tail-end farmers under the canal. If we complete the left channel, we can get two crops a year. Nagarjunasagar ayacut will be taken on a mission mode. I’ll tour along Krishna river to speed up the left canal project works.

The CM informed the Huzurnagar people that 600 micro, small, medium and major lift irrigation projects are under several stages of completion in the state.

KCR also assured Huzurnagar ring road development on the lines of Hyderabad tank bund.

Jagadishwar Reddy said that the TRS government has taken up development works worth Rs50,000 crore in the entire Nalgonda district. Flouride-hit Nalgonda district is now enjoying safe drinking water thanks to the Mission Bhagiratha, he said.
