Wyra (Khammam): Demanding release of Sagar water from Palair Balancing Reservoir to Wyra reservoir, the Opposition parties staged a protest demonstration here on Monday.

An All-Party committee that included CPI, CPM, Congress, Telugu Desam, YSR Congress and CPI-ML (New Democracy) took out a rally demanding the government to release water from Nagarjuna Sagar Project (NSP) Left Canal to save the standing crops, especially sugarcane and maize.

The leaders said that since the water-level in the Wyra reservoir was dropped by 3-feet, the people living in Bonakal and Wyra mandals are in for a huge trouble both on drinking water and irrigation front. It may be mentioned here that full tank level of Wyra reservoir is 18.2 ft. The protestors submitted a memorandum to the local Tahsildar to take the issue to the notice of authorities concerned.
