Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao put at rest speculation about a possible mid-term polls, when he asserted that there was no such possibility. Fielding a question during his post-cabinet meeting press briefing, Rao disagreed with a questioner on the issue. “We have twenty four months to go. There is no possibility of an early poll”, the Chief Minister said.

Chandrasekhar Rao, who was in an expansive mood, drove home the point that his government did not think about expenses when it came to fulfilling its electoral promises. To a question on the usage of power for various lift irrigation schemes in the State and the power bills the government would have to pay, he argued that it was his government’s

policy to help the farming community. Once all the lift irrigation schemes and major irrigation projects were completed, the Government would have bear power bills to the tune of Rs 10,000 crore to Rs 12,000 crore. This would be the responsibility of the Government and it would certainly fulfil its responsibility, he said.

Drawing a comparison, he said the top priority for a gulf country would be to supply drinking water to people in view of scant rainfall. The governments would spend huge money on desalination of sea water and it is their priority. Similarly, for us the priority is to help the farming community by providing irrigation facilities. “We will not go back on this issue”, he reiterated.
