Farmers of Matampally, Mellacheruvu and Chintalapalem mandals have staged a protest at Mujinepalli in Chintalapalem mandal in Suryapet district, demanding the release of water to chilli crop from Pulichintala Project in Andhra Pradesh. The total storage capacity of Pulichintala Project is 44 tmcft of water and in this season, officials can store up to 30 tmcft. The AP government did not store enough water in Pulichintala as compensation was not paid fully to displaced. At present, the dam has only 1.9 tmcft. The farmers demanded AP government to ensure 5 tmcft in project so that their crops can get water.
