CM Jagan Inaugurates Kuppam Branch Canal, Releases Krishna Water

 - Sakshi Post

Gundisettipalle (Chittoor dist), Feb 26: Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy released water from the Kuppam Branch Canal, which will irrigate 6300 acres afresh in Kuppam constituency and provide drinking water to 4.02 lakh people in Kuppam and Palamaneru constituencies. Addressing a huge public meeting here on Monday after conducting special prayers at the canal and releasing water at Rajupet in Ramakuppam mandal, the Chief Minister said the government worked with a strong commitment to the development of the constituency, though it was totally neglected during the TDP rule.

Stating that the release of water from the Kuppam Branch Canal would be written in golden letters in the region’s history, the Chief Minister said he has fulfilled his promise given to the people at a public meeting in Kuppam on September 23, 2022. After giving administrative sanction to the Kuppam Branch Canal in 2015 and awarding the contract to his proxies, Naidu treated it as a canal of money flowing into his pockets but abandoned it later as he couldn’t find the flow enough, he said. Though Naidu abandoned it, the government strived hard to bring Krishna water to Kuppam, 540 meters upstream and 670 km away from Srisailam as part of the Handri Niva Project, he said.

The 123.641 km long Kuppam Branch Canal was constructed at a cost of Rs. 560.29 crore under the AVR HNSS Project Phase-2 to strengthen the ayacut connecting 110 minor irrigation tanks in Kuppam constituency. He said the government has upgraded Kuppam from a panchayat to a municipality besides establishing a Revenue Division and a police sub-division for Kuppam. He said Rs. 66 crore has been sanctioned for various development works in Kuppam municipality and Rs. 100 crore for development works in four Mandals of Kuppam constituency besides giving administrative approval for the construction of a Rs. 215 crore reservoir as part of the Palar project.

The government has also given administrative approval for the construction of two reservoirs at Madanapalle near Shantipuram Mandal and Yamigani Palle near Gudipalli Mandal with a cost of Rs. 535 crore. These reservoirs will irrigate an additional 5000 acres, he said. Earlier, the Chief Minister also laid the foundation stone for the Palar project."
