    History[edit]

    That project is named for King Bhagiratha, who, according to myth, brought the River Ganga to Earth from the heavens.

    The inspiration for the project was driven by the residents who relied on contaminated groundwater. In drought-prone Nalgonda district, 973 villages faced high fluoride content that leads to disease and fluorosis.

    A similar project, , was conceived and completed by K.C.R, when he was MLA for Siddipet Assembly Constituency in 1996-97, at a cost of ₹100 crores. The water was sourced from Lower Manair Dam and supplied to all households in 180 villages across Siddipeta constituency. The Chief Minister vowed in 2016 that he would not seek votes in 2019 if the water project was not completed by 2018. The project was completed successfully. It received accolades from the Central Jal Shakti Minister Gajendra Singh Shekhawat in Rajya Sabha that Telangana is the only state in India providing piped water for every house hold in the state.

    The project was launched by the Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi at Komatibanda village, Medak district in Gajwel constituency on 6 August 2016.[4] The other dignitaries were, the Chief Minister of Telangana, K Chandrashekar Rao.

The project required 13,000 permissions from various departments like railways, defense, national highways, forest, irrigation, panchayat raj, roads and buildings.
