Setting off danger bells, Central Water Commission(CWC) raised concerns over the safety of the Srisailam reservoir which received heavy inflow after the recent unprecedented floodwaters from upstream.
As of records, the project has received 1,230 tmcft of water this year, six times more than the expected while the capacity of the project is 213 tmcft.
Amidst which, the authorities of the Srisailam project raised alarm over the plunge pool below the dam. It was learnt that the heavy flow caused serious pits in the pool which worsened with passing time.
Upon which, a special committee has looked into the situation and suggested immediate repair works worth Rs. 900 crores which now landed in the court of Telugu state CMs Jagan and KCR.
While the AP state government was learnt to deliberate upon both the states bearing the damage cost on an equal share, the Telangana state government is yet to respond on the on-going concerns.
All eyes are now on Jagan and KCR if the issue would bring back the bonhomie between the Telugu Chief Ministers.
