Sharmila laments neglect of T projects

Mahabubnagar, Nov 26,
2012: Sharmila, who is doing Maro Praja Prasthanam Padayatra on behalf of YSR
Congress President Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy, came down heavily on the Kiran Kumar
Reddy Government for not completing the irrigation projects in Telangana.

“YSR completed 75 per
cent of the Kalwakurthi, Nettempadu, Bhima and Koil Sagar projects during his
period but Congress Government couldn’t complete the balance works on these
projects in the last three years,” Sharmila told a public meeting at Aiza in
Mahabubnagar district on Sunday.

Recalling that YSR had
dreamt of providing irrigation water to eight lakh acres in the drought-prone
Mahabubnagar district through these projects, Sharmila said YSR thought of
stopping migration of labour from the district. “But, not even a drop of water
has flowed into the agricultural lands through these projects even 3 years
after YSR’s death,” she lamented.

People have been
complaining about lack of even drinking water let alone think of irrigation
water, Sharmila said, adding that the Government had no time to think of the
people’s problems.

Throughout the length
and breadth of the Padayatra on the 39th day, people from various
walks of life met her at various places and listed out their problems.

Several YSRCP leaders
Mekapati Raja Mohana Reddy, Mekapati Chandrasekhara Reddy, Bhumana Karunakara
Reddy, K.K.Mahendar Reddy, Bajireddy Govardhan, Vasireddy Padma, Swarna
Sudharkara Reddy, Challa Ramakrishna Reddy and others accompanied Sharmila
during the day’s Padayatra.
