Hyderabad: TRS president K.T. Rama Rao on Wednesday said that Chief Minister Mr. K. Chandrasekhar Rao’s vision and persistence in completing the Kaleshwa-ram Lift Irrigation Proje-ct in three years has made sure that Hyderabad will never have drinking water crisis like in Chennai or other metros.

He was replying to the twitterites for their reaction on his tweet with regard to the importance of the rain water harvesting.


He appealed to the people through twitter that for those interested in lea-rning more about Rain-water Harvesting, strongly recommend you to visit the Rainwater Harvesting Theme Park run by the Hyderabad Metropolitan Water Works and Sewer-age Board in city. Some of the twitterites reaction to his tweet raised the water scarcity in Hyderabad and Secunderabad.

Telugu film director Maruthi sought to know from Mr Rao about a news report (not Deccan Chronicle) which cited that Hyderabad had just 48 days of drinking water left.

Mr Rao replied “that report is not accurate. Once water from Kaleshwaram Project reaches Yellampally reservoir (in next few weeks), it will ensure that 172 MGD supply to Hyderabad will continue unabated. At the same time, it’s time all citizens realise importance of water conservation and harvesting.”

He said the CM has succeeded in completing the Project because he emerged as a leader from the mass movement.

He pointed out that as of now dry spell is continuing and there was no flood flows in Godavari, but “we have lifted the flood waters of Pranahita and stored about 11 TMC of water.”

Mr Rao felt that with this water around 1.5 lakhs will be irrigated and if the flood in flows increases, then they can be able to lift the waters through all the pumps of the project which will irrigate each acre of dry land in the state.
