The government is planning to bring at least 21 lakh acres under irrigation through the various projects in the old Mahbubnagar district, which is now Jogulamba Gadwal district, said minister Harish Rao, at a meeting in Gadwal. He is accompanying KCR, who earlier laid foundation stone for the Gattu lift irrigation scheme. He flayed the Congress for claiming to lay foundation stone during its rule. It did some slipshod work just before elections, Harish Rao said. He described the number of irrigation schemes that are coming to the district.
