Mahbubnagar (Andhra Pradesh), Oct 26: Asserting that Andhra Pradesh was an extremely important for the UPA government, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh today said the alliance was giving priority to the state and the Centre would leave no stone unturned in working for its rapid progress.

Speaking at a public meeting after laying the foundation stone for four-laning the Nagpur-Hyderabad and Hyderabad-Bangalore stretches on the North-South corridor, Dr Singh said the state would be one of the most developed in the country in a few years and the UPA would make all efforts to make this vision a reality.

Praising the efforts of Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Y S Rajasekhara Reddy for taking up a massive irrigation programme 'Jalayagna,' he said it would solve the problems faced by the people of backward Telangana and Rayalaseema regions in the state.

Dr Reddy said four lakhs acre land would come under cultivation once the Nettampadu, Kalwakurthy, Bhima and Koyalsagar irrigation projects were completed in Mahbubnagar district. The Centre and state governments were committed to develop this most backward district.
