Nizamabad: Bheemgal mandal farmers’ 30-year wait finally ended on Sunday with the completion of Vemuganti project works.

Mission Bhagiratha Vice-Chairman and Balkonda MLA Vemula Prashant Reddy on Sunday conducted trial run of the project and released water to canals.

Vemuganti project is a dream fulfilled for farmers of seven villages in Bheemgal mandal in Nizamabad district. Earlier governments issued many assurances to the Bheemgal farmers on completion of the project, but never fulfilled their promises.

The TRS-led government took up the project and sanctioned Rs 8.65 crore for its construction last year. The Mission Bhagiratha Vice-Chairman took special care to complete the project and held several discussions with Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao and Irrigation Minister T Harish Rao.

Vemuganti project is situated at Karepally forest area of Bheemgal mandal and provides irrigation water to 1,136 acres of Pipri, Bachanpalli, Pallikonda, Lingapur, Bheemgal, Siddapur, Puranipet villages directly. After the trial run, the project will benefit another two to three thousand acres indirectly.

State Irrigation Minister T Harish Rao and Nizamabad MP Kavitha inaugurated the project last year and irrigation officials completed 90 per cent of project works and remaining works would be complete within one month.

Balkonda MLA Vemula Prashat Reddy on Sunday conducted the trial run successfully and released the water to project ayacut. After this trial run, farmers celebrated the success and distributed sweets. Donkati Narsaiah, Pallikonda resident and Kammarpaly Market Committee chairman, said that with the completion of Vemuganti project their 30-year troubles were solved and they would obtain irrigation water from next Rabi season.

Bheemgal mandal farmers would always be thankful to the Chief Minister, Mission Bhagiratha Chairman as they had solved farmers’ troubles, he added.

Vemula Prashant Reddy said that the completion of this project would put a full stop to the irrigation woes of Bheemgal mandal farmers. The irrigation project would be completed as early as possible, he added.
