Yalal: Responding to the news in the media about the leakage of pipeline of Mission Bhagiratha at Juntupalli, the officials clarified that it was not a leakage but the overflow of water. The DE of Mission Bhagiratha Vijayakumar said it was not the leakage. “After completion of leakage work near Balma Naik thanda, water was released to Tandur BPT. At the time, water level increased in the CWR and pressure developed in the pipeline due to slope towards Thimmaipally BPT,” he clarified. The overflow was controlled within few minutes, he said.
