Raja Vasireddy Ramagopala Krishna Maheswar Prasad

Recommended Posts

Raja Vasireddy Ramagopala Krishna Maheswar Prasad, popularly known as Muktyala Raja (4 October 1917 – 28 August 1972) was instrumental in the construction of the Nagarjuna Sagar Dam, the tallest masonry dam in the world, in the state of Andhra Pradesh which is across the River Krishna.

The Raja of Muktyala strived hard for the construction of the Pulichintala Project across the river Krishna, a dream which has not taken shape recently. 

 

He came to know that the Government of Madras Presidency has made plans to divert Krishna river water to Madras by linking Krishna and Penna rivers. He embarked upon a tour of nine districts of Andhra Pradesh and visited each and every village to collect the signatures of people in favor of Nagarjuna Sagar Dam project.

 

 

He traveled through the thick and inhospitable jungles near Macherla to visit the site of Nandikonda and formed a team of retired engineers at his own expense to make the project plans and designs. The government of Madras tried to scuttle his plans for which the Raja established the 'Krishna Farmers Welfare Society' and exerted pressure on the Government of India in favor of the Nagarjuna Sagar Dam.

 

The Government of India instituted the Khosla Committee but the committee refused to visit the site on the excuse that there was no motor-able road to Nandikonda. The.The Raja gathered villagers and volunteers from twenty five villages and made a road by laboring day and night for a week at his own expense. The Khosla committee visited the site and found it to be the most ideal location to build a gigantic dam across the river Krishna.

 

There were attempts to suppress the report of the Khosla committee. The Raja went to New Delhi and with the support of N.G.Ranga, Moturi Hanumantha Rao and Kotha Raghuramaiah resurrected the report, distributed it to important people and urged the Planning Commission (Government of India) to take cognizance.

 

Chandhulal Trivedi, the Governor of the state of Andhra Pradesh urged the Prime Minister Jawahar Lal Nehru to accept the report of the Khosla Committee. An announcement was made in 1954 for the construction of the project. The foundation stone was laid on December 10, 1955. Raja spent fifty two lakhs of rupees as a matching grant for the project construction. The waters of Krishna river were released for the farmers on August 3, 1966

Good to know his efforts for Krishna Delta.

 

But Nagarjuna Sagar project constructed in place where he suggested exactly (or) different place is choosen later!

 

As current N.Sagar Admin side & One side mostly in Nalgonda & only downside in AP (Macherla side).

 

In future AP ki problem ayye tattu vundi ee Nagarjuna Sagar, current mottham already T govt. use chesukuntundi, water kooda vaallaki kaavalsinappudu vaadu kuntunnaru.
