The approval came after a delegation, led by the chairman of Block Samiti, Gurcharan Singh Cheeda, called on the Chief Minister in the presence of his OSD, Sandeep Singh Brar, at his official residence on Thursday afternoon.
Taking prompt cognizance of the matter, the CM immediately directed the Water Resources Dept to undertake the work at Sivia water channel at the earliest to enable farmers to get adequate water for their crops.
