Due to heavy rains on the Karnataka-Kurnool border, Thungabhadra river is in full flow at Mantralayam. Twenty gates of the Sunkesala reservoir have been lifted and water is being released. From there water is being released to the Kadapa-Kurnool canal also. This is the first time that the Sunkesala reservoir is filled to capacity. Farmers in Kurnool and Kadapa are happy.
