70 feet pylon of Telangana Drinking Water Grid


The water grid is being taken up at a cost of Rs 40,000 crore

Government will be spending upto Rs 91,500 crore to produce 25,000 MW power in the state

NALGONDA:Launching the pylon of his government’s prestigious drinking water project, Water Grid, and laying the foundation stone for the 4,000 mw Yadadri power plant, Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao said that no one can understand the problems in Nalgonda district better than him and assured that his government will put all efforts to solve the problems plaguing the district.

“I am a ‘Jagamondi’ (stubborn man). If I start something, I wont leave it at any cost till it gets completed,’’ KCR said adding that he would ensure that drinking water is provided to each and every household of the state. KCR said people need not even spend a single paisa for getting the water to their houses.

KCR also said that TS will be the most power surplus state by 2019. The water grid is taken up at a cost of Rs 40,000 crore while the government will be spending upto Rs 91,500 crore to produce 25,000 mw power in the state, KCR said. During his address, KCR indirectly referred that ‘tall leaders’ (read Nalgonda MP Gutha Sukhender) did nothing to solve the problems of the people.

However, our small ministers (referring to G Jagadish Reddy from Nalgonda) is working hard for making the state a power surplus. Similarly, our ‘lean’ ministers are ensuring that  students in welfare hostels are served polished rice.

Launching an attack on TPCC Chief N Uttam Kumar Reddy, who hails from the district, for alleging corruption in the water grid project, KCR shot back, Uttam Kumar is just Uttara Kumarud. We have not started the project or called tenders but he is smelling corruption. He is charging us with corruption because they have always resorted to corruption,” he said. The CM said the water grid project had won accolades from HUDCO, which  came forward to give a loan of Rs 10,000 crore. People like Uttam Kumar Reddy doesn’t see the  kind of accolades the project is receiving,” he said.

KCR said the execution of water grid is not an easy task as they have to cross nearly 2,000 hurdles in the form of railway tracks, water bodies, national highways, forests which come in the way of laying pipelines.
