CM KCR Extends Ugadi Greetings People
Hyderabad, April 12 (Maxim News): Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao today conveyed his greetings to people in the State on the occasion of Ugadi (Telugu Plavanama New Year). He said as predicted in the Telugu Almanac that there would be more importance given to the flow of water this New Year, water for irrigation would be available in abundance in the State. He said that it was a good omen that even the nature seems to be favouring the government’s vision in this regard.
The CM said Ugadi was well known as the beginning of the agriculture year and primarily a festival of farmers.
The CM said Ugadi welcomes the end of Fall and beginning of the Spring season and added that it also ushers in a new enthusiasm while noting that Farmers start their agriculture operations beginning with the New Year as it is a very integral part of the farmers’ lives.
The CM said it is also part of the age-old tradition that on Ugadi festival day people consume the special food item, the Ugadi Pacchadi. It is made of fresh Neem flowers, Tamarind, Raw Mango, Sugarcane and other ingredients which symbolizes various tastes from sweet, sour to bitter and this itself signifies various divergent experiences one encounters in the daily life.
The Ugadi Pacchadi is eaten often recalling the ups and downs in life. The people in Telangana who tasted bitterness under the united AP rule are now enjoying the sweet fruits under the Telangana State’s self rule. The CM reminded that water was harnessed, stored and then pumped to the higher planes above the Mean Sea level, through lifts, tunnels, canals and Barrages by major projects like the Kaleswaram and making the dream of one crore acre fertile lands in the State a reality.
