HYDERABAD:  The ambitious plan of Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao to give a powerpoint presentation on the floor of the House, on re-engineering of irrigation projects in the state is likely to face hurdles.

The Business Advisory Committee (BAC) of the state Assembly, which met here on Sunday to chalk out the business for the remaining days of the session, decided to take up discussion on two important issues, drinking water problem and the education sector in the state. This was agreed upon by all the sides. It was agreed upon to conduct business on March 30 and 31 also after the Appropriation Bill is passed on March 29.

Later, the issue of power point presentation over the government’s plans of redesigning the irrigation projects was discussed.It is learnt that the members of opposition parties challenged the proposal to give a powerpoint presentation on the floor of the House.

They said there was no such precedence where a powerpoint presentation was made on the floor of the House.

The opposition members suggested that the powerpoint presentation be made in the Assembly committee hall. Later, the discussion can be taken up on the floor of the House, they suggested.

The ruling party, however, insisted that the powerpoint presentation be given on the floor of the Assembly itself. With no consensus, the decision on the issue was left to Assembly Speaker S Madhusudhanachary.

Meanwhile, officials said the proposal to conduct a joint session of Legislative Assembly and Council also might not happen as there was no precedence where the Joint session sat except for the Governor’s address.

CSC to Consult Finance Dept on Irrigation Projects

The cabinet sub committee (CSC) on redesigning irrigation projects headed by minister T Harish Rao met on Sunday. This is the first time that the CSC met after its formation.
