Sharmila sheds tears of joy at Nettempadu Project
Ms Sharmila, who has been undertaking Maro Praja Prasthanam Padayatra on behalf of YSR Congress President Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy, today became highly emotional at the Nettempadu Lift Irrigation Project in Mahabubnagar District.
Ms Sharmila, who visited the project and spent nearly one hour there before resuming her day's Padayatra, shed tears of joy after talking to the officials and inspecting the machinery of the project.
Taking special interest in the project details, she strode through the entire project and couldn't control her emotions. She also offered prayers and performed holy bath to the statue of Dr YS Rajasekhara Reddy with the water flowing in the project and garlanded the statue.
The capacity of Nettempadu Lift Irrigation Project, which was proposed at a cost of Rs 78 crore prior to 2004 to supply irrigation water to 25,000 acres of land, was enhanced to provide irrigation to two lakh acres during the regime of Dr YSR at a revised cost of Rs 1428 crore. The project became part of Jalayagnam.
