Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao on Thursday said all the vacancies in the engineering wings of the Irrigation Department would be filled by June-end. Similarly, the construction of residential quarters for all irrigation officers and staff must be completed by the end of April, the Chief Minister told officials at a review meeting in Karimnagar after his visit to the Kaleshwaram Lift Irrigation Scheme.

The Chief Minister also directed Chief Secretary Somesh Kumar to sanction new collectorate buildings where it had not been done besides building new collectorates in place of the existing structures in Karimnagar and Nizamabad districts.

After having darshan at the Kaleshwara Muktheswara Swami temple in Kaleshwaram, Chandrashekhar Rao heli-hopped to the Lakshmi Barrage at Ambatpally village. The barrage is brimming with 14 TMC (out of 16.17 TMC capacity) of Godavari water. He had an aerial view of the water spread from Medigadda. The Chief Minister was then taken to the Medigadda barrage by Pragathi Ratham bus. 

The Chief Minister dropped coins in the river from the barrage to fulfil the vow he had taken during the days of the separate Statehood movement. He then held a review with irrigation officials about the manner in which water should be stored and distributed in the coming monsoon season.
