The Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) rank and file in all the 10 Assembly constituencies in former composite Adilabad district celebrated the inauguration of Kaleshwaram Lift Irrigation Project on Friday. Bursting of fire crackers and palabhishekam to the portrait of Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao, besides a show of local culture, formed part of the celebrations.

Mudhole MLA G. Vittal Reddy participated in the celebrations at the temple town of Basar, which included special prayers at Gnana Saraswati temple early in the morning.

The only jarring note came from Kagaznagar town in Kumram Bheem Asifabad district where the Congress party staged a protest at Rajiv Gandhi Chowk against the event. The protesters led by Sirpur Constituency in-charge of Congress, Palvai Harish Babu, accused the government of shifting the site of the Pranahita barrage from Tummidi-Hattti in Koutala mandal thereby depriving the region of water for irrigation.
