State urged to modernise RDS

Staff Reporter

All-party meeting wants power project shelved

GADWAL: The all-party meeting on Rajolibanda Diversion Scheme (RDS) canal at Santinagar in Alampur constituency of Mahabubnagar district on Friday urged the Government to take up modernisation of the canal system on par with the KC Canal supplying water to Kurnool and Cuddapah districts.

Representatives of the Telangana Rashtra Samithi, the Telugu Desam Party, the Bharatiya Janata Party and the Mahajana Party and people's organisations, at a public meeting, demanded shelving of the proposed power project, closure of vents in the anicut and supply of 15.9 tmcft to the canal to ensure water to 87,500 acres under the system.

No compromise: TRS

The TRS district president and Jadcharla MLA, C. Laxma Reddy, said that the assumption was that the Government took over the half-finished power project only to shelve it. Had the Government entertained any other idea, it would be in for serious protest by public as well as the TRS. The party would not compromise on protecting the interests of public, he said.

He asked the Government to make public the recommendations of the expert committee, which examined the project. The TRS State secretary, N. Venkatramudu, said the Government, which had improved the KC Canal system spending over Rs.1,000 crores, was neglecting the RDS Canal which supplied water to Telangana region.
