VIJAYAWADA: Expressing happiness over his efforts coming to fruition in linking Godavari and Krishna, Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu on Tuesday said that he would go in for similar projects in future to make Andhra Pradesh a drought-free state.

Speaking at Engineers’ Day celebrations here, the chief minister said that without the active work and involvement of engineers, no irrigation project could be completed. “The Pattiseema project which has become a reality in a very short span of time was because of the commitment of the engineers,” he said.

The chief minister said he does not want to let water go waste anywhere since elsewhere in the state, lands remain barren for want of water. In this exercise, he wanted the engineers to become partners which he said was the right tribute one could pay to Mokshagundam Visweswarayya on the occasion of his 155th birth anniversary.

He also wanted engineers to contribute their skill in the construction of a capital city for the state which should emerge pride of every Telugu person. Earlier, the Chief Minister garlanded the portrait of Mokshagundam Visweswarayya, marking his birth anniversary.
