He was holding a review meeting with senior officials of the State Irrigation Department, district administration officials and legislators at Pragathi Bhavan in Hyderabad, on Wednesday.

“The CM has envisioned to provide water to as many acres as possible with the construction of new irrigation projects and also with the expansion of existing projects across the State. Though the officials concerned have already managed to increase the area of cultivable land in the district, with the arrival of KLIS water, they are going all out to increase it further,” he said.
