Expressing solidarity with Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy over the united Andhra Pradesh issue, Secondary Education K Parthasarathy today said that all the ministers from Seemandhra region are behind Reddy.
"The chief minister always stood for the unity of Andhra Pradesh and all the ministers from Seemandhra region are behind him," the minister told reporters here.
According to him, all the Congress leaders, including the chief minister, understand the sentiments for the people and their anguish over the bifurcation issue.
Replying to a query, Parthasarathy said, "The chief minister is a committed Congress soldier and I do not think he would launch a new political entity."
Reddy is scheduled to inaugurate the Pulichintala project here tomorrow and will address the farmers in the city after the inauguration.
The minister assured that water would be supplied to Krishna delta from Pulichintala irrigation project starting from the 2014 Kharif season.
Criticising the TDP for its "false propaganda" that many major works are yet to be completed, Parthasarathy said, "Only a few minor works are pending at the Pulichintala irrigation project."
He added that the construction of 120 MW power generation plant at the Pulichintala project will take a couple of years to complete.
Talking about the school education in the state, Parthasarathy said that under the Rastriya Madhyamika Siksha Abhiyan, Rs 43 crore would be spent on the development of infrastructure, at 153 schools. PTI CORR NP 12061946 NNNN
