Finance Minister Etala Rajender sought to dispel the house of doubts over Mission Bhagiratha program and stated that it will be completed by 2017.
During question hour in the Assembly, Rajender rejected the comments of BJP leader G Kishen Reddy that villages lack CC roads, facilities like drinking water, power and others. He asked to show proof which villages lacked CC roads and asserted developmental works are going on at fast pace. The Minister said the State government was firm to complete the water scheme by 2017 and cater to the needs of the womenfolk in villages. He also refuted the charges of the Congress members that irregularities took place in the water scheme.
Replying to BJP leader G Kishen Reddy’s query on MB scheme, Rajender said the prestigious water scheme will be completed by 2017 and avoid a situation to dig bore wells. “During Congress regime, I made frequent visits to the minister concerned for just Rs 1 crore for roads and other works in vain, he added.
