The Congress has filed a complaint against the BRS government regarding the Kaleshwaram project. They are calling for an investigation into what they believe is a major irrigation project scam and want those involved to be punished.
Former AICC member Bakka Judson submitted a complaint to Commissioner, Central Vigilance Commission (CVC). He claims that the State government spent Rs 1.35 lakh crores without proper scientific study or a detailed project report. Judson also alleges that the government used incorrect engineering plans and gave the project to a company with a good reputation, only to later award the tenders to their close friends who are sub-contractors.
Judson recalls an incident in July 2022 when water entered the Medigadda Lakshmi barrage and submerged 17 motor pump sets at the Kannepalli pump house. He had previously filed a complaint with the Central Water Commission but no action was taken. Judson believes that this project is an example of corruption and that it has resulted in significant financial kickbacks.
Overall, the Congress is demanding a thorough investigation into the Kaleshwaram project and for those responsible to face consequences for their actions.
