Andhra Pradesh CM, N Chandrababu Naidu, has announced a new way of offering prayers to water bodies and to make people aware of water preservation.
The project called ‘Jala Siriki Haarati’, is aimed at praying at all the rivers, streams, lakes, ponds, irrigation projects, water reservoirs, check dams and all kinds of water bodies.
Naidu announced that the programme will be held across the state from 6-8 September.
The CM, along with irrigation minister, Devineni Umamahewara Rao, and other ministers, attended the ‘Krishna Haarati’ programme held at the Pavitra Sangam (confluence point of Rivers Godavari and Krishna) at Ibrahimpatnam.
While addressing people at the occasion, the CM reminded that his government completed the Pattiseema Lift Irrigation Project, because of which diverting the Godavari water into River Krishna was possible.
The chief minister added that 28 projects would be completed in the next three months.
