Palamuru RLIS to be inaugurated soon: KCR
KCR pointed out that Telangana is number one in the country in per capita income and per capita power consumption.
HYDERABAD: Stating that the Palamuru-Rangareddy Lift Irrigation Scheme (PRLIS) would be inaugurated soon as it has got environmental clearance, Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao on Tuesday said that the construction of irrigation canals of PRLIS would be started.
Addressing the Independence Day celebrations at Golconda Fort here, the chief minister said that water from the River Krishna would be lifted and stored in reservoirs of the PRLIS in the next few days.
Enumerating the welfare and developmental programmes of the BRS government in the last nine years, KCR lashed out at Opposition leaders for allegedly saying that three hours of power to farmers was sufficient. “I believe that the people would teach a befitting reply to these leaders,” KCR said.
He disclosed that the State government would provide interim relief to government employees and constitute the second Pay Revision Commission (PRC).
“With the vast development in the last nine years, the State has reached a stage that Telangana practises and the nation follows,” KCR said. “It is a matter of pride for all of us, as there is a wide debate across the county on the development model of India’s youngest State, Telangana,” he said.
KCR pointed out that Telangana is No. 1 in the country in per capita income and per capita power consumption. “Creating wealth and distributing it is the policy of the BRS government. That was why the poverty in the State reduced from 13.18 per cent in 2015-16 to 5.88 per cent in 2019-21,” KCR said, quoting a NITI Aayog report.
