With this, the farmers of Gangnahar and Bhakhra canal systems would get enough water.
In the letter addressed to Singh, Gehlot wrote, "Ferozepur Feeder line was constructed in the 1960s. Since then, with ageing, the canal got damaged at many places resulting in lowering of its water carrying capacity."
"Relining work was urgently required to restore the capacity of this canal and thus improve the supply of water. This would benefit the farmers of Western Rajasthan," the letter stated.
He added, "Recently, relining works of Indira Gandhi Canal Project were completed in a 23-kilometres long stretch and more such repair works would be undertaken soon so that the farmers' demand of water for irrigation could be met uninterrupted.
