Hyderabad, July 18:Irrigation Minister T Harish Rao on Tuesday reiterated his request to the Centre that Kaleshwaram irrigation project be declared as a 'national project'. Harish Rao told reporters after meeting Union Surface Transport Minister Nitin Gadkari that the request was placed before him.
