Besides the corona rampage in the two Telugu states, the water controversy between the state government’s has turned as the next happening affair in Andhra and Telangana. While AP CM seems to be ever ready for the tussle at Apex Council, Telangana supremo KCR looks to take calculated moves while he recently urged the central government to postpone council meet for undone reasons.
However, things started to heat up since KCR directly addressed the issue on Monday. Lashing out on the Jagan government KCR stated that they will not give up on the irrigation projects’ issue at any cost. Followed by a meeting with the respective officials, KCR accused that it was Jagan and his officials who started the wrangle.
He condemned AP lodging a complaint with the Centre against the irrigation projects being constructed by Telangana. “It was me who invited Jagan for a friendly luncheon meeting where I made a few suggestions for the benefit of both the states. I even proposed an action plan to divert the Godavari waters to farmlands in both the States. But seems like AP wants us to be foe rather a friend,” averred the TRS supremo.
KCR also stated that they are ready to counter AP with an effective argument at the Apex Council meeting. He then found fault with the Centre for objecting to the release of water from the Srisailam to Nagarjuna Sagar Project (NSP) and stated that they are ready to negotiate with Central government as well.
On this note, it turned interesting as of whom the Modi-led central government would support in this issue while Jal Shakti Minister Gajendra Singh Shekhawat recently shot a letter to both the CMs calling for a meeting.
