Vijayawada: The third zone area under the Nagarjunasagar reservoir cries for water. The area which falls under the western parts of Krishna district is staring at the government for release of water to fill over 260 irrigation tanks besides providing irrigation water for 2.20 lakh acres.
Way back in 1994, when Devineni Rajasekhar (Nehru) was the Minister in the NTR Cabinet, he held a couple of meetings in Jaggaiahpet with the irrigation officials, and ensured release of water to the third zone. Even then Vissannapet, Chatrai, Nuzvid and Bapulapadu mandals faced water crisis.
