An open letter wrote to NRIs of the region from the Minister that that the lakes restoration project would help farmers and towns get fair irrigation waters to reap in better benefits and prevention of migration.
Three NRIs are coming forward to adopt lakes and ponds; he recalled that the former played a pivotal role in Telangana movement by exposing the issue to all other nations. The NRIs either as persons or in groups could take up lakes restoration works in the State and help prevent migration of farmers and the poor, he said. As many as 46,000 lakes and water bodies would be restored, including 9,000 ponds every year, he said. Now time for participation of NRI’s to develop motherland.
With the animus of Kakatiya rulers, KCR began the Mission Kakatiya project to provide safe drinking water to the people in each household in nine districts. Harish said the government was ready to name the lakes that will handover that lakes. In January, teleconference will be held with the Telangana NRIs
