Mission Bhagiratha above suspicion, says KTR

Vishwas News

Hyderabad, Mar 23:The Minister for Municipal Administration and Urban Development K T Rama Rao said the supply of safe drinking water was the primary responsibility of the Government, and Mission Bhagiratha intended to supply drinking water to all was a unique programme.
Stating that no other State in the country was implementing it on such a large scale, the Minister said that the water supply even in Gujarat, which he visited, was only up to the village head point and there was no supply of tap water directly to the households as in the case of the State. It is a matter of pride for the people of the State," he asserted during a discussion on municipal administration in the State Assembly here on Wednesday.
Ruling out irregularities in the implementation of the programme, he turned down the demand of the Congress members to order a House Committee probe into its implementation. "Allegations being made by the Congress leaders only amount to mud-slinging," he said.
The implementation of Mission Bhagiratha works was being closely monitored by the government at all levels and it is above the scope of suspicion, the Minister said, adding the Congress members were worried over the success of the programme as it would cost them their support base among the masses.
He stated categorically that the government was ready to face any sort of enquiry on Mission Bhagiratha as Congress MLA Komatreddy Venkat Reddy said he would take up the matter with the vigilance authorities.
Leader of the opposition K Jana Reddy admitted that the implementation of the programme was appreciable, but the responsibility of proving its integrity rests with the government in the wake of the allegations of irregularities made by Komatreddy Venkat Reddy.
Venkat Reddy alleged that Mission Bhagiratha works in Nalgonda district were implemented with inflated estimates. As the Minister did not yield to their demand for House Committee probe, the Congress members lodged their protest and stage a walk out from the House.
Later intervening in the discussion, Minister for irrigation T Harish Rao said that both Mission Bhagiratha and Mission Kakatiya, two of the flagships programmes of the TRS government, were high on its agenda and the Congress leaders were out to mislead the people with baseless allegations.
He said Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao was so committed to the implementation of Mission Bhagiratha that he had even gone to the extent of declaring that he would not go to the people and seek their votes in the next election if he failed to give water to all as promised under Mission Bhagiratha.
Mission Kakatiya was also being acknowledged as one of the best irrigation programmes in the country, Harish Rao said.
