Tank at Malleswaram village in Kolhapur mandal of Mahbubnagar district has been included in the Mission Kakatiya project even though it cannot provide water for a single acre. Village is located on the banks of Krishna river and the tank merges in Krishna river with backwaters from Srisailam project. The Telangana government released Rs 24 lakh for the tank renovation works. Contractor had taken up renovation works for two days and now is busy in collecting bills from the officials. Villagers are alleging that renovation of the tank was included in the Mission Kakatiya only to benefit the contractor.
