Hyderabad, July 15 (Hydnow): TPCC chief A. Revanth reddy today slammed the state government for its failure to stop the submergence of the pump houses of the Kaleswaram lift irrigation project.
Citing a news report that CM KCR is not releasing funds for the maintenance of irrigation projects in the state, he said that why CM KCR, who bragged that he spent ₹1 lakh crore for the construction of the Kaleswaram lift irrigation project, was not giving ₹1000 crore for the maintenance of the project? He wondered if the CM would not release the funds unless he got commissions out of the same? He made these remarks in a series of tweets made on his official Twitter handle.
Speaking on the occasion, Revanth raised the issue of the havoc wreaked by the recent incessant rains and asked the CM if he was not able to see the damages incurred by the people of the state. He condemned the statement of state minister KTR, who said that there were No crop losses in the state due to the rains. He said that the officials of the agriculture department of the state had said that crops spread across 11 lakh acres of land were damaged due to the rains.
Meanwhile, Revanth expressed his condolences over the death of journalist Zameer in Jagitiyal district. (Hydnow)
