Check on quality
Citing the breach of earthen dam of the Mid Manair Reservoir due to heavy rains last year, Mr. Chandrasekhar Rao directed the irrigation authorities and work agencies to take higher care on the quality of works and also take up strong flood banks at the main barrages – Medigadda, Annaram and Sundilla.
