It is known that the AP government has issued a G.O to lift 3TMCs of water from Pothireddypadu to the Rayalaseema region. Now, the Telangana Chief Minister K Chandra Sekhar Rao has become alert and complained Krishna Board about the injustice being happened to their people in the share from Krishna River’s water.
Now, being fed up with the board, KCR has decided to construct another lift irrigation reservoir on the top of the Jurala project so that he can get a major share form the Krishna River. He instructed the officials to check the requirements for the construction of the reservoir that has a capacity of 15-20 TMCs and he may arrange a review meeting in Pragathi Bhavan soon.
The argument is that AP is within its right to take up the project, which is meant to provide water to the parched districts of Rayalaseema and parts of Nellore and Prakasam. But the Telangana is going to bring in additional projects into the play so that they can send the water to Mahaboob Nagar which is a drought area so that they can ruin the plans of the AP government.
So, the upcoming days are going to be very tense and both CMs are determined to gain an upper hand at all costs.
