Hyderabad: The government is determined to get the SLBC tunnel project completed as quickly as possible, irrigation minister N. Uttam Kumar Reddy said on Thursday. Chairing a review meeting, he directed principal secretary irrigation to set up a committee of officials to oversee the completion of the SLBC tunnel project. He was responding to a briefing by representatives of the contractor who wanted hurdles to be removed if the construction was to be completed in two years. Of the 44-km long tunnel designed to carry water from Srisailam to Nalgonda district, only 9 km needed to be dug.
