Soon after Jagan assumed office, the booming affinity between Telangana Chief Minister has been one of the most discussed in the political circles. A couple of meets at Pranathi Bhavan added spark to the speculations while the leaders were seen sharing a friendly space.
Seems like the affinity is no longer on positive teams, said a trusted source with the ‘Water War’ gaining momentum. If this information is to be believed, AP and Telangana are now stuck with the Krishan water issue while the officials are rumoured to make grounds ready for a legal tussle.
Into details, it all started with Andhra Pradesh planning to lift the lion share i.e, three to four tmc of water of the Krishna waters released from the Srisailam project via Pothireddypadu which reportedly didn’t go well with T-Govt. TRS sources revealed that leaders of Rangareddy Reddy, Mahabubnagar including the senior engineers too opposed AP who started persuading KCR to make a move. Reportedly, KCR called for an emergency meeting with the irrigation officials on Monday to move the Krishna River Water Management Board regarding the issue.
Reacting to the issue, Telangana officially clearly stated that GO 203 to lift three to four tmc of water issued by the AP government is against the AP Reorganization Act and that both the governments should legally binding to get an approval from the Apex Committee. Meanwhile, AP irrigation minister Anil Yadav stated that T-officials are unnecessarily making a fuss out of the GO. He also said that CM Jagan would take a move justifying both the states.
