HYDERABAD:  Irrigation minister T Harish Rao wants people to involve themselves in the restoration of tanks across the state which will commence soon.

A variety of literature was coming on restoration of tanks and one such was the book ‘Neeti Gummi’, Rao said. He congratulated Gowri Sankar on adopting a tank in his native Nalgonda district for restoration. More such literature should be brought out to create awareness among people on restoration of tanks. Rao said that the works would be awarded on EPC system but not on nomination basis.
