Announcements by successive govts mere rhetoric

Early Times Report
Jammu, Aug 18: The negligence on part of successive coalition governments as well as Irrigation and Flood Control Department (I&FC) can be gauged from this fact that over a decade ago, the coalition government of PDP-Congress had announced that four check dam would be constructed to irrigate dry land of Kandi belt of Jammu region but unfortunately none of them is completed so far.
Sources in I&FC department informed Early Times that Wajoo Chack-dam, Khokhayal of district Kathua with estimated cost of Rs 25.85 Crores, Check dam on river Tarnah at Pranjali with an estimated cost of 14.37 Crores were announced in 2007-08 and 2008-09.
"While another two check dam were announced in 2008-09 including Check dam on river Basantar at Taloor with an estimated cost 13.27 Crores and check dam onKharara nallah at Chowki Choura with an estimated cost of 5.50 Crores announced by former government but none of them is completed so far", sources informed.
However, all the projects would be executed under the central Sponsored scheme- Accelerated Irrigation Benefit Programme (AIBP) including 10 percent money would be released under state share but ironically all the projects are hanging in balance due to unknown reasons.
Source further said that the first phase of work of these check dams were almost completed while the second phase of works is lingering on due to unknown reasons. "Irrigation department has completed the construction of barrages but the land acquisition for the construction of canals and its allied rivulets which is supposed to irrigate thousands of dry lands is still under process", said sources.
After the completion of phase-I construction work successfully on river Basantar at Taloor, the executing agency (I&FC) had made an another proposal of Rs 2.78 Crores for completion of second phase project- wherein the department would construct the main canal for irrigation purpose and its allied canal network and would installed Water Lifting Machineries on proposed check dam but the funds is still not released so far.
An official while whishing anonymity said that now, most of projects have been installed due to monsoon season. Because these rivers/nallah are porn to flood. As soon as monsoon season would be end, the second phase of work would be restored immediately and hopefully by the end of this financial year, all the projects except khararra nallah of Chowki Choura would be completed.
