"Central government has assured us to help the state government in providing technical expertise to complete the Jammu Lake project," Singh said.

"Union Minister for Water Resources Uma Bharati has assured me that a technical committee would be sent to reassess the project and iron out the technical difficulties so that it is completed," Deputy CM said.

He said that huge money has been spent on the project and it cannot be allowed to go in waste.

However, earlier in the day, Chief Minister Mufti Mohammad Sayeed had hinted at shelving of the previous NC-Congress government's artificial lake project in Jammu, saying it is not "feasible".
