The YSRC leader said farmers had apprised her about the delay in the construction of the inter-State Lower Penganga Project on the Penganga river which would effectively control floods in the river. She said she would also represent to the government asking it to take up the matter with the neighbouring Maharashtra State.

“I do not know if the government will act on it but, I promise to that Jaganmohan Reddy will construct it once he comes to power,” she said. “Jagan will also take up lift irrigation scheme as demanded by the farmers,” she added.
