Mr. Naidu inspected the pump house and offered ‘Jalasiriki Harati’ to Krishna.
Asserting that 16 bombs were available for the Muchumarri LI regime to release water to the HNSS through 12 bombs and to the KC channel through four bombs, he said that water could be lifted from Muchumarri to a level of 798 feet in the reservoir of Srisailam and supplied to any channel as per the requirement.
