"Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao has instructed the officials to complete Palamuru-Rangareddy Lift Irrigation Scheme on a fast note like it was done for the Kaleswaram project and make arrangements for supply of water for the crop lands by next Monsoon season," the statement read.
Rao recalled that as the TRS government completed the ongoing projects in the erstwhile Palamuru district, half of the district is getting irrigation water. The remaining 50 per cent lands in the erstwhile Mahabubnagar district too would get water after the completion of the PRLIS, Rao averred.
"The officials worked 24x7, in three shifts, eight hours a shift, for the construction of Kaleshwaram. Officials should work for three shifts for the Palamuru- Rangareddy too," the chief minister was quoted as saying.
Irrigation engineer-inchief Muralidhar Rao and Palamuru-Rangareddy Lift Irrigation Scheme chief egnineer V Ramesh were present at the review meeting.
