We have shown that there is nothing called Impossible – said Chief Minisher, AP, Chandrababu Naidu during the inauguration of the Pattiseema lift irrigation project as he released water from the twenty four pumps that became operational at Pattiseema on Wednesday. The water will be used for irrigation of thousands acres of land in Krishna delta.
“History has been made. It [the achievement] is going to find a mention in the Guinness Book of Records as my government has completed the river-linking project in just 320 days. To achieve this, one needs strong commitment and vision, which only my government has,” shared the CM who has ensured that people worked day and night to complete the project in record time.
In what can be termed as successful execution of a well-planned project, 30 percent of the 80 tmcft water proposed has been achieved – and the rest will be completed in a phased manner. CM Chandrababu says, “When I spoke of linking Godavari and Krishna, everyone laughed at me. The opposition parties challenged me saying it was impossible. But today, I have made it possible. I am giving Godavari water to the Krishna delta through Prakasam barrage.” This was part of the government’s action plan to supply 80 tmcft of water to the Krishna delta.”
My next target is to link Krishna and Penna, he said.
