The Chief Minister said before completing Kaleswaram Project Barrage, Pump Houses, the construction of canals should be completed and the MLAs should pay attention to it.
He said that for projects like Devadula, SRSP there are canals but were full of silt as they are not in use rendering feeder channels and canals useless. There is an urgent need to repair them. The MLAs should identify where to attend the repair work and ensure that the officials are on the job.
There are many irrigation projects are coming up in the State and water is to be supplied through the canal system and hence the canals should be completed first. Since there are proposals to fill the tanks with water from the barrages, if the canals are ready, tanks can be filled up with water, the Chief Minister said.
KCR also suggested that the legislators should also keep track of the works going on under Mission Bhagiratha in their respective Constituencies.
He asked the MLAs to find out how far the works on Intake Wells, Pump Houses, Sub Stations and pipeline executed, will the works be completed on scheduled time or not? Incase there is a problem, bring it to the notice of the Mission Bhagiratha Vice Chairman and officials concerned.
Works will be speeded up if the MLAs take responsibility. The Chief Minister said by end of this year, every village will get the drinking water and the MLAs should take initiative to see that water tanks and internal pipeline works are completed.
