Dr. B.R. Ambedkar Pranahita-Chevella Sujala Sravanthi lift irrigation project work began in 2008. The aim of the project is supply 160 tmc irrigation water to over 16.40 lakh acres in several Telangana districts, besides drinking water to Hyderabad. But keeping factors like water availability and objections from Maharashtra in mind, KCR has re-engineered the project to decrease the height of the barrage at Tummidigadda and build another barrage at Medigadda. In the wake of rumours that the project is being shifted from Tummidihatti to Medigadda, minister Harish Rao denied them and said that false propaganda is being made against TRS government.
