Participating in the discussion on demands of Irrigation, Power, Roads and Buildings and Panchayat Raj and Municipal Administration on Tuesday in the Legislative Assembly, Prabhakar alleged that there was no change between the previous governments and the present government in regard to Irrigation projects. The leaders, who criticized Jalayagnam as Dhanayagnam in the past, were now became the Ministers in the TRS government and were doing the same now in the name of redesign.

He also alleged that the present government was allocating huge amounts of funds for the irrigation projects but was not spending them even half of the funds. The TRS government failed to achieve single drop of additional water through redesign of projects. The State government was not utilizing the helping hand of the Centre more so the State government was diverting the Central funds to other schemes, he alleged and challenged that the BJP will not ask votes in case it failed to extend support to the State government in getting more Central funds.

The BJP leader alleged that the State government was collecting huge amounts of taxes from the slum dwellers who constructed houses under G.O.No.58. The tanks in Hyderabad were spreading bad smell with horseshoes in the tanks and the TRS government has utterly failed to solve the problem. Alleging that the State government was failing to supply the uninterrupted power in the areas like Uppal and LB Nagar, Prabhakar opined that there was a need to spend amounts allotted to various projects properly to achieve ‘Golden Telangana’.

Stating that the Central funds were flooding to the state in big way, Prabhakar alleged that the state government was not utilizing the Uday scheme and it was not proper to the state government.  He demanded the state government to regularize the services of the contract employees working with electricity department. He alleged that the state government was indulging in unannounced power cuts instead of power cuts. Reacting on it, Power Minister G Jagdeesh Reddy said that the state has excess power and there were no such incidents taking place in the state and it was not proper to the BJP member to mislead the people.
