AP CM Chandrababbu, at Ferry near Ibrahimpatnam, said that the government had overcome numerous obstacles to see this historical day of linking of two rivers. Stating that it is a dream come true, he applauded all those who were present as witnesses to the historic event. He said the idea of linking rivers was that of former prime minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee. But the consequent Congress governments neglected it, he said. It is the first time in the country that an important step forward has been made in river water linking, he added. Earlier, Babu inaugurated the pylon of the Pattiseema project amidst rituals and worship.
