On the dot of 11.23 am on Friday, at Medigadda Barrage in Jayashankar Bhupalpally district, Mr Rao dedicated his dream project “to the nation” by unveiling the plaque in the presence of Governor E.S.L. Narasimhan, Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis and Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy.

Mr Rao switched on the Kannepally Pump House at 1.07 pm and pumping of water started at 1.15 pm from the pump house.

The state government described the inauguration of the Kaleshwaram project as an historic event with the participation of CMs of three riparian states amidst an atmosphere of bonhomie against the background with disputes regarding water sharing.
