Chief minister K Chandrashekar Rao, who earlier said there should be no compromise on Right of Way for laying of pipes under Mission Bhagiratha, gave his consent for laying pipelines through his Erravelli farmhouse in Medak district.
On Tuesday, officials took up Mission Bhagiratha works in Gajwel constituency of Medak district. In the process, officials had to lay pipeline through KCR’s farmhouse at Erravelli.
Officials informed the same to the CM and the latter gave his consent immediately. ‘’The officials informed the CM that they are laying the pipeline as per the Right of Way Act. They told that they can lay the pipeline through the farmhouse under the Right of Way Act,’’ a Chief Minister’s Office release said. The pipelines passed 300 metres through the farmhouse. The pipeline, intended to bring Godavari waters, is being laid from Venkatapuram to Varadarajupuram.
To lay the line, the ginger crop in KCR’s farmhouse had to be removed.
