Prime Minister Narendra Modi will inaugurate a series of programmes, including a massive 40,000-crore Telangana state water grid ‘Mission Bhageeratha’, during his maiden visit to Telangana on Sunday. The state government has made elaborate security arrangements.
Mission Bhageeratha is a brain child of Telangana Chief Minister K. Chandrashekar Rao to provide safe drinking water through pipe line at Komatibanda at Gajwel in Medak district.
With this, about 67 thousand households of the Gajwel Assembly constituency will get safe drinking water through pipe line. The Prime Minister will be dedicating 1200 MW Singareni Thermal power plant to the nation besides laying foundation stone for the NTPC 1600 MW power plant and revival of Ramagundam Fertiliser Plant on the occasion.
He will also lay foundation stone for the long pending Manoharabad- Kothapalli new railway line and also a textile park at Warangal besides the Kaloji Narayana Rao Health Universitiy.
He will be operating all these activities from Komatibanda only through remote control along with the concerned central ministers. Union Labour Minister Dattatreya told reporters after a review meeting in Hyderabad that all arrangements are in place for the Public Meeting that the prime minister will be addressing at Gajwel and at LB Stadium in Hyderabad.
“Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao invited the Prime Minister to the state to participate in various programmes and accordingly, the Prime Minister for the first time visiting Telangana on August 7,” a state government release had earlier said. Modi is expected to reach Begumpet airport in a special flight in the afternoon. From there he will reach Gajwel in Medak district in a chopper and address a public meeting there, it said.
