Pattiseema Project is south India’s first river link

HYDERABAD

Commissioning the “historic” Pattiseema project on Wednesday, Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu also released an official video, stating the projects benefits to the people.

However, it is only the first phase of the project that has been completed, reports The Quint.

To promote the project on its inauguration day, the Telugu Desam Party government on Wednesday released a video on its official YouTube channel, explaining not just the benefits of the project, but also its technicalities through graphics.

Naidu unveiled a pylon at Ferry village near Ibrahimpatnam to formally launch the project, linking Krishn and Godavari rivers.

Amid the chanting of Vedic hymns by the priests, Naidu performed puja at the confluence of the two rivers. His cabinet colleagues and many local people were present.

Naidu later left for Pattiseema in West Godavari district to switch on the first pump of his pet project to release water from Godavari into the Polavaram right main canal that links with the Krishna river upstream of the Prakasam Barrage in Vijayawada.
