Hyderabad: Congress MLA from Sangareddy T Jayaprakash Reddy on Wednesday welcomed the decision of the State government to inaugurate Kaleswaram irrigation project on June 21. He said there was no reason to fault the project as it would fill Singur and Manjeera projects in Sangareddy and would help his constituency people and farmers to overcome their water woes.
In an informal chat with mediapersons, Jayaprakash Reddy said construction of irrigation projects by any government should be appreciated by all political parties. The Congress had built Nagarjuna Sagar, Sri Ram Sagar, Singur and Manjeera projects in the State and also played a role in the construction of the Kaleshwaram project. He urged Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao to fill the Singur and Manjeera projects within year of the launch of the Kaleswaram project.
He also said he would felicitate the Chief Minister if he fulfilled his wish on behalf of the people of Sangareddy district. Commenting on the rampant corruption in the Kaleshwaram project, he said he was not aware of any kind of corruption but the issue will be dealt with by the CLP leader.
