    Kaleshwaram project’s Package-9 witnessed a successful trial run at the Malakpet Reservoir. One pump had already been tested and now the second pump has also completed its trial run from 12:40 pm to 1:40 pm on Sunday. This is the second trial run conducted, following the first one on the 23rd. Both pumps have been successful, as stated by Minister KTR and District Collector Harsham.

    With an estimated cost of 1,500 crores, the construction work for the tunnel project has begun to meet the demand for water in the surrounding areas. However, the farmers are still not satisfied with the government’s efforts. After the state formation, Minister KTR promised to provide water from the Godavari river through the Kaleshwaram project. The 9th package of the project aims to provide water to Singasamudram Cheruvu in Narma Mallegudem Mandal, near Godavari river, with the help of gravity. They have constructed underground tunnels for a distance of 12.3 km from Rampapagutta to Malkapet.
