Hyderabad: The Centre on Monday said it had not received any proposal from the Telangana state government seeking financial assistance for the Kaleshwaram project.

Replying to Congress Rajya Sabha member Dr T. Subbarami Reddy, Union minister of state for water resources Arjun Ram Meghwal, said: “So  far, no proposal for Central assistance for the Kaleshwaram lift irrigation project in Telangana has been received by the Central Water Commission.”

 

This reply is in contrary what Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao and TRS leaders have said.

Mr Chandrasekhar Rao, irrigation minister T. Harish Rao and TRS leaders had accused the NDA government of not extending financial assistance for the Kaleshwaram project while supporting the Polavaram project in Andhra Pradesh.

Mr Meghwal’s clarification showed that the state government had only submitted representations to the Centre but had failed to send an official proposal to pursue the case with the Centre.
