Hyderabad, June 12 (NSS): Finding fault with the Irrigation Minister T Harisha Rao for stating that the Congress party was obstructing the irrigations projects, TPCC treasurer Guduru Narayana Reddy made it clear that the Congress party’s demand was to implement Land Acquisition Act-2013 whenever it acquires land from the farmers.

He said that Harish’s allegations were false and said that the Harish was indulging in Gobles publicity. He suggested Harish Rao to stop levelling allegations against TPCC Chief N Uttam Kumar Reddy and warned that the Congress party would teach a fitting lesson in case Harish failed to stop criticism against Uttam.
He asked Harish Rao to tell whether extending support by his family in land acquisition of for the sake of construction of Baswapur Reservoir, which was part of Kaleswaram project, was comes under obstructing the projects. Guduru said that their family has given 120 acres of land for the sake of Baswapur Reservoir.
