    The NDSA recommended emptying water from the Medigadda, Sundilla, and Annaram barrages after inspections revealed issues. The state government released the water as directed by the Authority, despite demands from BRS leaders to fill up the barrages.

    Uttam Kumar Reddy criticized the BRS leaders for politicizing the issue and accused them of neglecting quality, maintenance, construction, and design during the Kaleshwaram project. He expressed disappointment in their attempts to downplay the incident at Medigadda Barrage.
