Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao said,“to reroute Godavari River waters to Telangana cultivated lands, projects built on Pranahitha, such as the Kaleshwaram project and reservoirs, are yielding good results,” the Chief Minister remarked. Irrigation water has been lifted, making Telangana a fruitful soil, despite several challenges. Godavari River waters must be utilised to their full potential, not just from Pranahitha but also from upper Yellampally, where water is abundant.
“The relevance of the Kaleshwaram project will be realised during a famine. To alleviate the effects of the famine, we built the Kaleshwaram project. We have taken provisions to ensure that water is available in abundance at all times, particularly during famine. We now have water in our possession. “How we use water is determined by our intelligence,” he remarked.
The Chief Minister went on to say that after raising water and filling reservoirs, irrigation water should be available in districts like Karimnagar, Warangal, Adilabad, and Khammam in the Godavari Basin.
