    The state government has extended the term of Justice Chandra Ghose Commission on Kaleshwaram for two more months, from July 1 to August 31 this year. This decision was made due to a delay in submitting affidavits by State Irrigation officials. The commission is investigating the poor construction of Medigadda, Annaram, and Sundilla barrages under the Kaleshwaram lift irrigation scheme.

    The Ghose commission has already completed public hearings and meetings with irrigation officials. Officials have provided information on the barrages but are still waiting to submit the affidavit. Ghose has requested more time to prepare a report on the alleged irregularities during the construction of the barrages, and the government has accepted this request. The commission was initially supposed to finish the investigation by the end of June.

    The Ghose Commission will expedite the probe by requesting details of the Vigilance and Enforcement report on damage to the piers of Medigadda and seepages reported at Annaram and Sundilla. The commission is also waiting for the final report from the National Dam Safety Authority (NDSA) to support its findings. The NDSA has already submitted an interim report, prompting the government to start temporary repairs at the damaged barrages.
