HYDERABAD: Chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao is gearing up himself to give a marathon PowerPoint presentation explaining the broad water policy of the state in the Assembly on October 8.
“It will be a joint session of the Assembly and Council. Rao will address members of the Houses,” sources close to the chief minister told Express on Thursday.
“The CM will explain the broad water policy of the state including the plans of redesigning and reengineering of irrigation projects. Rao is likely to take six to eight hours’ time to explain the TRS government’s plans to develop irrigation sector,” the sources said.
The ongoing monsoon session of the Assembly will conclude on October 10. Two days before the end of the session, Rao will address the joint session of the legislature. After Rao’s presentation, the House will be adjourned. The next day will be devoted for the opposition and ruling party members to seek clarifications on Rao’s marathon presentation.
Sources in irrigation department confirmed that Rao would use Google Earth map with a screen. While showing the map, Rao will explain where the project or barrage will come up and how the water will be diverted. The Google Earth map will automatically show the level of the earth at a particular place.
“Rao’s marathon presentation will cover all the details of the irrigation sector in the state and it will clear the doubts or apprehensions of the opposition,” the sources said.
A proposal has came up for arranging the joint session of the Assembly in a committee hall. But there was no sufficient place for all members of two Houses of legislature. Most likely, Rao will give his presentation in the Assembly, the sources added. It is not, however, clear whether he will supply any printed material to the legislators or not.
