Intervening in reply to a question in the State Assembly, Mr. Gehlot said he had visited the project site recently and was monitoring the progress of work for supply of drinking water from Mansi Wakal, Akodra and Madri dams to Udaipur. Budget for the ambitious project had already been enhanced, he added.
