Stop Dummugudem-Nagarjunasagar tail pond project- K.Kavitha
K.Kavitha, Telangana Jagruthi president, has alleged that the proposed Dummugudem-Nagarjunasagar tail project will be against the interests of farmers of both Khammam and Nalgonda districts if implemented.
Ms.Kavitha, accompanied by retired chief engineer R.Vidyasagar Rao, on Friday visited the project site at Anantharam in Manuguru mandal in Khammam.
Later, speaking to media, she charged that the tail pond link canal project was intended to benefit the ‘Seemandhra’ region at the cost of farmers of Khammam and Nalgonda districts by way of diverting godavari waters.
Tail pond project deprives the farmers of Khammam and Nalgonda districts of their agricultural lands to the tune of around 16,000 acres.
