KCR sked officials to complete all works on Kaleshwaram project

Vastavam web: Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao today asked officials to complete all works on the Kaleshwaram Lift Irrigation Project (KLIP) on fast track.”All works on Kaleshwaram project should be completed on fast track since the required permissions, funds, land acquisition and other related issues are cleared and as such there are no obstacles,” an official release quoted Rao.

The CM said inter-state agreements on the Kaleshwaram project are over and the Central Water Commission (CWC) has given its nod to it.”Forest clearances are also given and the environment clearances are about to be given. In addition to provision of Rs 25,000 Crore in the Budget another Rs 20,000 Crore is mobilised through banks and other financial institutions,” Rao said.Since drinking water scheme Mission Bhagiratha is dependent on water from the Kaleshwaram, those works are to be speeded up, he said.”Mission Bhagiratha works are going on well. In the next 45 days 98 per cent villages will get water,” Rao added.
