Hyderabad: Chief Minister K. Chandrashekhar Rao said that all the irrigation projects are planned in such a way that every acre of agriculture land in the State will get water for cultivation.
For the past two days, the Chief Minister has been personally examining the Kaleswaram project works with team of officials and public representatives travelling by two heli copters. On Friday, the Chief Minister examined works going on Rampur and Potharam pump houses in Malyala mandal in Jagtial district.
He inquired in depth about the works with the irrigation officials and representatives of the contract agencies. He held a review at the Pump house with the officials and public representatives.
He has instructed Irrigation Minister Sri T Harish Rao and officials that plans for the projects should be done in such way that in Telangana State farmers should no longer look up for the rains to cultivate and every cultivable acre should get water.
He has instructed the officials to ensure that farmers should go in for planting in Rabi (Rohini karthe) and finish all the crop related works of the Rabi crops.
The Chief Minister wanted the officials to be ready to fill up all the tanks in districts under the Godavari Basin on a war footing from next June when all the pump sets of the Kaleswaram projects are ready. He also instructed the officials to prepare estimates for the check dams on rivers and canals so that no acre is left without water.
He wanted estimates to be prepared for 4 to 5 check dams on Maner River, 2 to 3 on Moola Vagu River. He wanted survey to be done before preparing the estimates on check dams whenever they are necessary.
KCR desired that water should be supplied from Devadula via Warangal district to Tungaturthy, Suryapet, and Kodad. He felt that after agriculture fish culture would become the second highest revenue generating profession.

Indebted to the electricity departments
When the Chief Minister suggested that water should be given to the farmers to ensure the agriculture operations of Rabi are to be over before March 20, CMD Prabhakar Rao said it would also be beneficial for the electricity departments if the summer crops were over by then.
