goregaon, crores of rupees Kalpathri Medium Project was prepared by spending. Thousands of farmers have given their land for this. But many farmers are deprived of the benefits of the project. Due to which the Kalpathri medium project is proving to be a white elephant.
This project was prepared by the government for the purpose of irrigation in 1915 hectare area. Whereas at present only 500 hectare area is getting benefit from this project. At the same time, the farmers of the remaining 1415 hectare area are deprived of the facility of this project.

Whereas the water of this project is not reaching the farmers of the remaining villages like Telankhedi, Ghumra, Palkheda, Tumsar, Nimba, Tedha, Tilli, Mohgaon, Hausitola etc. These villages are not getting water due to the high height of the canals prepared for these villages. Whereas Hiratola, Mahagaon, Devatola, Panchavati, Davdipar, Bote, Jhanjia canals have been prepared. The water of the project is not reaching because of that too being unhealthy. This problem is there for many years.
