    The Justice Chandra Ghose Commission is investigating the damages to the Kaleshwaram project. They questioned irrigation officials involved in building three barrages – Medigadda, Sundilla, and Annaram. The officials must submit explanations by June 25 through affidavits.

    Former Engineer-in-Chief (Irrigation) Muralidhar and Chief Engineer (Kaleshwaram) Venkateswarlu, removed from service by the Congress government, were also summoned. The current government believes they were involved in finalizing contracts and operating the barrages.
