“There are are over six lakh works that were taken up under the Jalyukt Shivar project. Funds of Rs 9,500 crore were spent. Classification of complaints will be done by a committee in six months, and some of them will be probed,” Gadakh, the state’s Soil and Water Conservation minister, said.
He also said his department was facing a cash crunch due to the coronavirus outbreak and lockdown and 40 per cent of the Rs 2,800 crore sanctioned in the budget had arrived.
He said the state government will spend Rs 140-150 crore to revive the Water and Land Management Institute (WALMI) here.
