BC Welfare and Civil Supplies Minister Gangula Kamalakar has assured that Karimnagar city would become a major tourism spot in Telangana once the Manair River Front project is completed.
The Telangana government sanctioned Rs. 310 crore regarding building of retaining walls on either side of Manair River in the downstream of Lower Manair Dam as part of Manair River Front project. The cable bridge was built at a cost of Rs. 190 crore, and the construction of check dams with Rs. 80 is under progress.
On Saturday, the Municipal Administration and Urban Development Minister K T Rama Rao along with Kamalakar and Tourism Minister Srinivas Goud organized a high level review meeting with officials for discussing the Manair River Front project in Hyderabad. Kamalakar along with the District Collector K Shashanka, Karimnagar Mayor Y Sunil Rao, members of the land survey team and others visited the cable bridge on Sunday.
The Minister said that holding a review meeting with the Ministers KT Rama Rao and Srinivas Goud the very next day of GO issued by the government and starting survey works shows how the government is committed toward the river front development project.
While four check dams were built up to Bommakal spending Rs. 80 crore, the remaining ones are in their final stage. The retaining walls with a height of 12 feet would also be constructed.
