KCR Releases Water Into Haldi Vagu, Gajwel Canal

Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao today released waters from the Kaleshwaram project into Haldi Vagu and the Gajwel Canal.
Hyderabad | 6th April 2021
The Telangana government's ambitious plan to use the Kaleshwaram Lift Irrigation Scheme (KLIS) to irrigate one crore acres of land in the state today came another step closer to fruition when Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao released water from the Kondapochamma Sagar into Haldi Vagu at Avusulapalli, located in Siddipet district's Wargan mandal, amidst much cheering from the locals.

Haldi Vagu eventually merges with the Manjeera and flows into the Nizam Sagar project. The water, which flows downstream, will help farmers in the area irrigate over 14,000 acres of farmland. Reports suggest that 1,600 cusecs of water will be released into the canal, and water from it will reach the Nizam Sagar in about 10 days. Both Haldi Vagu and Manjeera will now keep running even in the summer months.

The CM reached the mandal in a special bus and first offered special prayers to the Kaleshwaram waters before commencing with the ceremonial release of the waters. He was accompanied by Assembly Speaker Pocharam Srinivas Reddy, Finance Minister T Harish Rao, and Roads and Buildings Minister V Prashant Reddy among others.

Later, KCR visited Pamulaparthy village in Markuk mandal. Here, too, he offered special prayers to the KLIS waters before releasing them into the Gajwel Canal. The released water will fill up the Pamulaparthy, Pathuru, Chebarthi, Pragnapur, Gajwel, Kesaram, Bayyaram, and Jaliyama tanks among others.

The locals expressed their happiness at the development by cheering for the TRS and the CM.

The festive atmosphere in the two villages was palpable to all. Today's development, it is hoped, will push up the arable area in both Medak and Siddipet.
