As the state continues to be battered by torrential rains, Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao issued an order to authorities and public representatives to take preventative measures in light of the growing flood risk in the Godavari river catchment area.

The north Telangana region is experiencing heavy rains, particularly in the Balkonda assembly segment and Nizamabad district. KCR has asked Vemula Prashanth Reddy, a local MLA and R&B minister, to keep an eye on the precautionary measures.

Meanwhile, NDRF teams have been dispatched to Nirmal, which is currently under water. The district’s average rainfall was 146 mm, with up to 13 mandals getting significant excess rainfall.

In addition, the chief minister directed that ministers and MLAs stay in respective districts and constituencies in the Godavari and Krishna catchment areas to monitor the flood situation on a regular basis. He also told TRS leaders and cadres to report to Telangana Bhavan and keep an eye on the situation.
