Chandrasekhar Rao asked irrigation minister T Harish Rao to take steps for construction of a check dam on the Dontivagu between Brahmanapally and Gundlapally, and release of funds for it. 

The chief minister also stated that by giving Rs 4,000 per acre per crop to them, farmers would be able to purchase seed, fertiliser and pesticide. If this was continued for five or six years, farmers would benefit a lot, Rao said.
