``It is a fact that there is a dearth of funds for the Jalayagnam projects  but we will try  to procure  more funds for the same so that the completion of projects will notbe delayed,’’ the CM averred .As reported earlier the Petroleum, Chemicals & Petrochemical Investment Region project was granted by the Centre in May 2007.
