Kaghaznagar, May 21 : YSR Congress party President Y S Vijayamma reiterated on Tuesday that the party, after coming to power, would take up the Pranahita-Chevella project on a priority basis and complete it at the earliest.
Addressing a gathering of people after sanctifying the pylon of the Pranahita-Chevella Project at Tummidihetti near Kaghaznagar, Vijayamma faulted the Government for neglecting and delaying the project under some pretext or the other.
“Like any other welfare scheme neglected and diluted by the present Congress Government, it has neglected this project also. Dr YSR launched the project aiming for Telangana development and laid the foundation stone on Dec 16, 2008 but after his death nothing moved on the project,” she lamented.
She said YSR Congress party is very much determined to complete the project to meet the agricultural needs of Telangana area.
“Completion of the project is also the wish of party chief Jagan Mohan Reddy. Recently, when I went to meet him and informed him of my visit to the project site, he wanted me to convey his determination to complete the project soon after coming to power,” said Vijayamma amid ‘Jai Jagan’ and ‘Amar Rahe YSR’ slogans.
When completed, the project will provide irrigation facilities to 1, 56, 000 acres of lands in Telangana area, she said. She earlier planted trees and garlanded the statue of Dr BR Ambedkar near the pylon of the project. INN
