NALGONDA:Panchayat raj minister K T Rama Rao came down heavily on the opposition Congress party here on Saturday for its remarks on water grid project during its Rythu Bharosa yatra in the district on Friday.

He laid foundation for a water treatment plant under Water Grid project at Udayasagaram reservoir in the town.

Addressing a public meeting at the PG college grounds, KTR said that even as other chief ministers were appreciating the Water Grid project, Congress leaders are making baseless allegations against the scheme.

“They are making a hue and cry over the project as it will provide drinking water to every household and they will lose their base in the state if the project is completed,” he said. 

He said that leader of opposition K Jana Reddy, who hails from the district, has not discussed farmers’ problems in the Assembly, but is making allegations during the Rythu Barosa yatra.

Jana Reddy worked as minister with various portfolios for about 17 years, but he has not developed his Nagarjunsagar constituency.

“Jana Reddy, despite being panchayat raj minister, did not bother to eradicate fluoride problem and distribute safe drinking water to people of his district,” KTR said.

The minister observed that the TRS government arranged subsidised seeds and fertilisers to farmers, provided six hours of continous power supply for agriculture sector and also promised to complete water grid scheme within the next three years.

Earlier, KTR along with health minister C Laxma Reddy, energy minister G Jagadish Reddy participated in a bike rally from Marriguda bypass road to Clock Tower centre.  They also laid foundation for construction of 150 bedded district headquarter hospital building in the town.
