Hyderabad: Congress MP A. Revanth Reddy on Sunday demanded
Telangana chief minister K Chandrashekar Rao to immediately take up
construction of Narayanpet-Kodangal Lift Irrigation Scheme.
In an open letter to the chief minister, Revanth Reddy he asked why the state government has abandoned the scheme, which is intended to irrigate 1.07 lakh acres.
The MP said the scheme was sanctioned when Telangana was part of the undivided state of Andhra Pradesh. In fact Rs 133 crore was sanctioned for the scheme then.
He pointed out that the Palamuru-Ranga Reddy Lift Irrigation Project will not benefit the Narayanpet and Kodangal areas.
Revanth Reddy alleged that the chief minister is indirectly supporting the Andhra Pradesh government in completing its projects on the Krishna river....
