Irrigation Minister Devineni Umamaheswara Rao said that the TDP government's goal is to complete Handri-Neeva project by 2016 and Galeru-Nagari by 2017. Devineni Uma said that his government has taken up Pattiseema project to divert water from Polavaram right canal to Prakasam barrage and then release into Srisailam waters so that it can be provided to Handri-Neeva and Galeru-Nagari projects. He slammed YSRCP president Jagan for obstructing Pattiseema project. Uma said that they could bring six-and-a-half tmc water to Handri-Neeva through canals.
