HYDERABAD:  The people of Telangana will  benefit from the water grid project within a year and a half instead of three years as planned earlier, panchayat raj minister KT Rama Rao has said.

He said during a discussion in the Council on Wednesday, Rao said areas close to water sources would be the first to benefit.

Stating that the government was apprised of the need for interim measures for drinking water supply to rural areas, he said the rural water supply department was  geared to do the needed. He said the government had earmarked `270 crore for it for the next two years.

Refuting opposition’s charges, he said, “All they  know is earning commissions from such projects.  Hence their baseless allegations.”
