Kadapa district officials have completely neglected the desilting of lakes in the district, leading to the land remaining dry. Despite the warning by Chandrababu Naidu, the officials have not reacted. By desilting the lakes, ground water could be restored and saved for at least a year, people said. But officials were not bothered and concentrated only on streams and rivers, they said.
