The AIADMK government in Tamil Nadu has taken extensive steps for water resource conservation and management across the State, Chief Minister K Palaniswami said Saturday.
Addressing an election meeting, he said the government has accorded top priority for the welfare of farmers and desiltation works had been taken up at a cost of Rs 3,000 crore in delta districts.
Palaniswami said a special team headed by four experts has been set up to identify places where check dams have to be constructed with a view to preventing rain water from flowing into the sea during the monsoonseason.
"Our government has taken extensive steps for conservation and management of water resources.
We are determined to implement a new combined water scheme for this area," he said while campaigning for the party's candidate from Mayiladuthurai Lok Sabha constituency S Asaimani.
Travelling between Sirkazhi and Mayiladuthurai, the chief minister stopped his campaign vehicle near paddy fields at a few places and interacted with farmers.
