Kaleshwaram Lift Irrigation Project is the most important project of Telangana. The State government has claimed it as one of the costliest irrigation projects. It is an off-shoot of the original Pranahitha-Chevella Lift Irrigation Scheme taken up by the Congress government in 2007 when Telangana State was not formed. After the new Telangana state was carved out in 2014, the TRS government has redesigned the project alleging that the original plan had too many environmental obstacles. The project is designed to irrigate many lakh acres uplands in the erstwhile districts of Karimnagar, Warangal, Medak, Nizamabad, Nalgonda and Ranga Reddy. Watch the aerial view of the project.
