CM asks officials to prioritise utilization of river waters

Hyderabad, Sept 12:Chief Minister K. Chandrashekhar Rao has instructed the officials concerned that drinking water should be given top priority in the utilisation of river waters and Minimum Draw Down Levels (MDDL) should be maintained at all the reservoirs and Irrigation projects.
The Chief Minister held a review meeting with the officials on supply of water to Mission Bhagiratha programme with Irrigation and Mission Bhagiratha officials here on Monday. Government's Chief Advisor Dr. Rajiv Sharma, Chief Secretary SP Singh, Special Chief Secretary SK Joshi, E-in-C Nagender, OSD Sridhar Deshpande, Mission Bhagiratha E-in-C Surender Reddy, Advisor Gnaneswar, CE Jaganmohan Reddy and CMO officials participated.
"We have taken up a gigantic programme like Mission Bhagiratha to supply drinking water to every household on a daily basis. Once we start supplying the drinking water we cannot stop it. We should not stop it either. For this water from the rivers should be available throughout the year. For this maintain MDDL at all the projects. It is not enough if water is stored at the projects and it should be released when need arises. Water should be released when it is required so that there is no scarcity. We have kept 30 resource points for Mission Bhagiratha. Calculate how much water is required for each resource point and store 25 percent more than the required quantity of water. Prepare charts project wise and issue orders. Based on this, prepare the Project Operation rules. For this, Irrigation and Mission Bhagiratha officials should have joint meetings," the Chief Minister said.
The Chief Minister said that the State Government was constructing new projects besides the ones which are already in existence. "We are allocating 10 percent of water for drinking water purposes. Utilising project water for drinking water purposes is a right in Telangana State. If Kaleswaram and other projects are ready, we will get more water.
