Salekasa: The irrigation project of Beverto, which is crucial for making irrigation water available to farmers of the taluka has not been completed even after 23 years. As a result, billions of rupees spent on this project are also in vain. Even farmers of taluka are deprived of irrigation.
After a long time in 1995, for the first time, the BJP-Shiv Sena government was formed in Maharashtra. The then Irrigation Minister, Mahadevrao Shivankar approved several irrigation projects in Gondia-Bhandara district. In this, an ambitious project was undertaken to set up a medium irrigation project near Bevertoola village of Salekasa taluka and to cultivate farmers’ farm in Sujalam Sufalam. Beverto got the original administrative approval on January 1, 1996. Within a few days, this project was duly performed as BHUBOPUJAN. At that time, Rs 87.95 lakh was approved for the project. During the earthquake of this project, the irrigation project was completed in three years and assured the farmers of Darekasa area to get water for irrigation. So the tribals in the minds of the farmers had thronged their hearts. The work had started at a rapid pace. The rehabilitation process of 236 people was also begun as the two villages of Beverto and Navatola came into the drought-hit area. 64 families were relocated and rehabilitated near Chinchur village. But since the beginning of the project, since 1996, till now, farmers have not received irrigation facility for more than 23 years.
The time taken policy of the existing government
For the past five years, the BJP government in the state and the center is also the BJP MLA. Despite the BJP’s rule from Lane to Delhi, no steps were taken to complete this project. Therefore, farmers have been deprived of irrigation since last 23 years.
The work of the floodwaters is completed by 80 to 90 percent. Reservoirs have been stored. But both the main distributaries of water are still incomplete. Even though the canal is ready for some time, the right canal is blocked due to the sanction of the train near ChanduSur village.
Ignore the lead government too
Until 1999, the dam and canal work has not been completed. But the five year rule went on and then the Congress-Nawab-Congress alliance government came. In the meantime, the MLAs also changed in this area during the Congress-Nationalist Congress government for 15 years. Whenever BJP and Congress have got an opportunity, but to overcome the technical difficulties of Bevarota, it has not been done to overcome the problem of canal construction, by completing the dam project. The resultant irrigation minister is deprived of irrigation.
