VIJAYAWADA: To monitor the progress of execution of various irrigation projects, especially Polavaram project, in the State, Water Resources Minister P Anil Kumar launched a mobile app and website on Wednesday. He noted that the State government has already prepared an action plan to complete works of major projects in the next 24 months.

Speaking after unveiling the app and website at the Secretariat, the minister said that the real-time monitoring system was developed as per the direction of Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy. “Our action plan has been synced with the app to complete the works in stipulated time.
