    The state government in Hyderabad is looking into the damage at the barrages of the Kaleshwaram project. The Irrigation Minister, N Uttam Kumar Reddy, stated that accountability will be determined after a judicial commission submits its report. Some officials have already faced consequences after a vigilance inquiry.

    The Kaleshwaram project experienced serious damage, including leaks in two of the three barrages and a collapse of the Medigadda barrage structure. An expert committee from the National Dam Safety Authority recommended interim measures to protect the barrages, such as keeping the gates open and undertaking monsoon flood protection works.
