BALLARI: By irrigating 42,000 acres in Huvinahadagali, the government has solved water problems faced by farmers, said Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai on Thursday.
After inaugurating Jana Sankalp Yatra here, he said during the last visit of his predecessor B S Yediyurappa, the people of the taluk had demanded the completion of the Singatalur Lift Irrigation Scheme.
“While I was Water Resources Minister, an irrigation facility was provided to 42,000 acres in Huvinahadagali; filled up tanks that helped recharge ground water tables. The development has happened in this region thanks to BJP and Yediyurappa,” Bommai said.
“Some are claiming credit for the Huligudda project, but it was shelved and linked with the Singatalur lift irrigation scheme. The Tadakal irrigation project will be soon completed and dedicated to people,” Bommai added.
The CM stated that he had placed the report card of the BJP government, and the people must allow the lotus to bloom here and kick out the Congress party. “Your must help BJP to win 150 seats as wished by PM Narendra Modi”, he said. (ANI)
