Hyderabad, Nov 18: Telangana BJP today urged Governor E S L Narasimhan to direct the State government to fulfil promises made by Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao to the people.
In a memorandum submitted to the Governor, BJP leaders P Muralidhar Rao, P Sugunakar Rao, Goli Madhusudhan Reddy and Lingampally Shankar have stated the people of Telangana are hoping as a newly formed state would be making great strides in order to satisfy the long-standing aspirations under your able guidance. But the TRS government failed to keep its promises.
Urging the Governor to direct the government and take necessary action in this regard, the BJP leaders said it is very unfortunate the Chief Minister was not complying the promises made by him during the poll time and later. One of such promises is that the State Government promised to supply irrigation water to an extent of 60,000 acres in Choppadandi Assembly, consisting of Choppadandi, Ramadugu, Gangadhara, Mallyala, Kodimyala and Boinapally mandals of Karimnagar, Jagityala and Rajanna Sircilla Districts with the source of Sripada Yellampally Project water. But, the time for the Rabi season to irrigate the crops is passing over but the state government failed to supply water to them due to which the farmers of Choppadandi segment are losing their second crop thereby they are sustaining the financial loss.
Citing another instance, the party said Kondagattu Anjaneya Swamy Temple is one of the famous temples in North Telangana. Due to the scarcity of water, the pilgrims are facing many difficulties. For last many years the pilgrims and people of North Telangana have been demanding to construct a reservoir over the hillock and fill with Godavari river water to avoid dirtiness and water scarcity. We request you to direct the State Government to take definite steps to fulfil the dreams of the people.
Lastly, the land oustees of Mid Manair Dam did not receive the compensation to their lands and structures for last 20 years. The State Government made several promises to them but they have not complied as promised. The people of submerged villagers have been facing hardship for their rehabilitation and resettlement as R&R package has not been implemented. The BJP leaders urged the government to initiate a process to address the problems of the people immediately and to pay compensation and implement the R&R package to them.
