The primary impetus for the project i.e in order to provide water supply to the Telangana Districts people have come from the miserable state of the people of Nalgonda district. They forced in order to drink polluted groundwater. The residents of 973 villages were drinking water with the high quantity of fluoride that causes fluorosis. A similar type of Telangana drinking water supply project has earlier supervised by K. Chandrashekar Rao in 1996 when he was Telangana’s MLA.
