"We are aiming to put an end to the harships of the farmers and ensure enough water for two crops a year. I thank everyone who worked with full efforts for the completion of the Kaleshwaram project. The other projects too will be constructed and completed with the same spirit. A technical survey was completed recently and it was decided to construct a new barrage at Medigadda with a storage capacity of 16.17 TMC on a height of 100 metres. This can help further water storage and water can be pumped for seven months in a year. The water is stored till 54 mns in Pranahita and 42 kms in Godavari river" told KCR.
