Warangal: The state government is going to spend more Rs 8.6 crore rupees to lift water from Godavari through Devadula project and provide drinking water to the people of Warangal said Deputy Chief Minister Kadiam Srihari. Due to poor rainfall last year and early onset of summer this year, the water reserves in the tanks that are the drinking water sources for the tri cities would be able to provide water only till the month of May and hence this decision was taken.

Speaking to newsmen after a meeting with the candidate selection committee held at Hanamkonda on Monday, Mr Srihari said that the state government is dedicated towards the development of Warangal and appealed to the voters to continue their support to the party and bestow similar results as in the Parliament byelection.

Mr Srihari who was heading the nine-member selection committee of candidates for the election held the first meeting. He said selection of candidates would be complete by Tuesday. The selection committee would select candidates based on their winning chances and their eligibility, he said.

“The TRS government is focusing more on development of Warangal district and particularly on the district headquarters. In united Andra Pradesh, Warangal did not get due recognition and development. After formation of separate Telangana, the TRS government is going to turn Warangal into an educational hub by constructing Health University, Tribal University, Agricultural University, Veterinary College, Sainik School and Hyderabad Public School and most of these would start functioning from next academic year,” he said.

Also, as Hyderabad is full of IT companies, the Chief Minister took a decision to send all new IT companies to set up in Warangal. Industrial corridor between Warangal and Hyderabad would be formed.

The Deputy Chief Minister said the state government grand plans for the city and its people. He urged the voters to choose the TRS governance in municipal corporation so that decisions regarding development could be easily implemented. MPs Pasunoori Dayakar and Gundu Sudharani, MLAs D. Vinay Bhaskar, Aroori Ramesh, Konda Surekha, T. Rajaiah and MLC Konda Murali were present.

Meanwhile, nine candidates filed nominations on the first day for the Greater Warangal Municipal Corporation elections. While four filed nomination papers from BJP, one candidate from TD and two TRS candidates and two independent candidates filed nominations.
