On Tuesday, Telangana’s Chief Minister, Revanth Reddy, along with ministers and MLAs, is set to visit the Medigadda barrage, a pivotal part of the Kaleshwaram lift irrigation project. This visit is highly anticipated in the state, given its political implications and the controversies surrounding it. Revanth Reddy even offered to arrange a helicopter for the convenience of the opposition leader, KCR.
Departing from the Assembly premises, the Chief Minister, accompanied by Deputy Chief Minister Mallu Bhatti Vikramarka, ministers, MLAs, and MLCs, will travel to Medigadda by bus. Invitations have been extended to legislators from all parties, although the opposition BRS and BJP have declined to participate.
Revanth also extended an invitation to KCR to participate in the Assembly debate on irrigation projects, but the BRS leader did not attend. KCR has been absent from Assembly sessions since his party lost power to the Congress, drawing strong criticism from Revanth Reddy, who sees it as a disrespect to Telangana society.
Meanwhile, KCR is expected to attend a public gathering in Nalgonda on the same day, organized by the BRS to protest the Congress government’s decision to transfer projects on the Krishna River to the KRMB.
The sinking of several piers of the Medigadda barrage a few months ago led to the dispatch of a fact-finding team by the National Dam Safety Authority. This incident, which occurred before the Assembly elections, fueled controversy, with the opposition Congress alleging widespread corruption in the project.
