Schemes Meant To Fill Yellow Pockets

Mandapet: Ruling TDP leaders were conspiring in the name of lift irrigation scheme to ultimately change Godavari delta area into a desert, complained YSRCP's president of East Godavari district, Kurasala Kannababu. In a media conference arranged at the residence of Doolam Venkanna Babu, the general secretary of the party's youth wing at Kesavaram, he spoke to criticise that there was no availability of irrigation water to the crops of the area, leaving thousands of acres to wither. Constituency coordinator Vegulla Leela Krishna, former minister Pinipe Viswaroop, youth wing's state president Jakkampudi Raja participated in the conference.
Kannababu acclaimed former CM Dr.YS Rajasekhar Reddy for thinking in a proactive manner and taking up Polavaram project. Reminding that the canal work of the project had been done under YSR's tenure, he criticised TDP Government for not trying to get national level funds for the project and wasting time on lift irrigation schemes like Pattiseema and Purushottampatnam. Complaining that this involved a huge corruption, he stated that these schemes were only meant to fill the pockets of yellow party leaders. Kannababu demanded for immediate repair of all lift irrigation schemes in the district and provision of irrigation water to the farmers.
