The telangana Rashtra Samithi on Saturday demanded that IT Minister Ponnala Lakshmaiah resign from his post for his failure to get adequate water for irrigation in his own constituency in the district.

A delegation of TRS leaders inspected various villages including Jangaon, Raghunathpally and Khilashpur to study the prevalent drought conditions. Talking to reporters later, TRS floor leader Etela Rajender said that crops spread over hundreds of acres have dried up due to erratic supply of water and electricity.

Referring to the challenge posed by the IT Minister stating that he would quit from the post even if one acre of land had dried up in his constituency, the TRS leader said that the minister should accompany TRS delegation to witness the dried up lands and as offered, he should resign from his post.
