Tension prevailed for a while at Rallapadu project in Nellore district, where farmers opened the dam gates, to release water for their drying crops. Meanwhile, farmers of neighbouring Prakasam district, tried to close the gates, as water has reached dead storage in the reservoir and the district will fall short of drinking water. There was a wordy duel for a while between the farmers and officials of both the districts. Teams of AP police reached the place and restored peace.
