We will complete Pranahita: Vijayamma

Nagar, May 21, 2013:  YSR Congress party honourary President Smt. Y. S. Vijayamma reiterated
on Tuesday that the party, after coming to power, would take up the
Pranahita-Chevella project on a priority basis and complete it at the earliest.

Addressing a gathering of people after sanctifying the pylon of the
Pranahita-Chevella Project at Tummidihetti near Kagajnagar, Smt. Vijayamma faulted
the Government for neglecting and delaying the project under some pretext or
the other.

“Like any other welfare scheme neglected and diluted by the present
Congress Government, it has neglected this project also. Dr. YSR launched the
project aiming for Telangana development and laid the foundation stone on Dec
16, 2008 but after his death nothing moved on the project,” she lamented.

She said YSR Congress party is very much determined to complete the
project to meet the agricultural needs of Telangana area.

“Completion of the project is also the wish of party chief Sri Jagan
Mohan Reddy. Recently, when I went to meet him and informed him of my visit to
the project site, he wanted me to convey his determination to complete the
project soon after coming to power,” said Smt. Vijayamma amid ‘Jai Jagan’ and
‘Amar Rahe YSR’ slogans.

When completed, the project will provide irrigation facilities to 1, 56,
000 acres of lands in Telangana area, she said.

She earlier planted trees and garlanded the statue of Dr. Ambedkar near
the pylon of the project.
