Addressing a public meeting at Sullurpet, 90 km from here on Thursday, he promised that both the reservoirs would have a storage capacity of about 140 tmcft. For land acquisition, Rs. 90 crores had been sanctioned and to expedite the project capacity works, a separate Secretary has been appointed.
The Chief Minister declared that an additional 50,000 acres in Nellore district would get water supply from Telugu Ganga.
The CM's speech at times sounded like an election speech and he took the opportunity to lash out at the Congress.
He sanctioned a number of schemes to Sullurpet, which he described as `a gateway of Andhra Pradesh'. They included water supply project at a cost of Rs. 5 crores, proper development of Nerri Kaluva (Rs. 5 crores), development of Pamula Kaluva (Rs. 1.50 crores) and towards residential schools (Rs. 28 lakhs). The Information Minister, S. Chandramohan Reddy, Sullurpet legislator, P.V. Rathnam, Udayagiri legislator, K. Vijayarami Reddy and others spoke. The CM distributed assets worth Rs. 1.88 crores at Sullurpet, benefitting 3,819 persons.
Speaking to reporters after the public meeting, Mr. Naidu declined to go into the issue of holding elections in the State and said they have to be thought of in November. (Which November, however, he did not specify).
The issue would be decided by the Election Commission, he said.
Earlier at D.V. Satram and Sullurpet, he inaugurated and laid foundation stones for projects worth more than Rs. 12 crores.
