Hyderabad: Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao has instructed the irrigation officials to release 1 TMC of water from Yellampally to Flood Flow Canal utilising the SRSP Revival Scheme.
MLAs belonging to United (Old) Karimnagar district have brought to the notice of the CM that since there is not enough storage of water available in SRSP, Ayucut farmers are facing problems.
Responding to this, the CM has instructed the officials concerned to utilise the alternative way provided under the SRSP revival Scheme.
The CM instructed that 1 TMC of water should be released from Yellampally to Flood Flow Canal via Nandi Medaram, Lakshmipuram, Rampur and Rajeshwarpet. With this, the CM said water should be given for the SRSP Rabi Crop for lands under the jurisdiction of Balkonda, Jagtial, Choppadandi, Karimnagar, Vemulawada, and Dharmapuri Constituencies. Engineer-in-Chief Anil said water would be released in tune with the instructions given by the Chief Minister. (INN)
