(G.N.S) Dt. 7
Telangana CM K Chandrashekhar Rao has said that state government would fight at all fora without any compromise to protect the interests of the state’s farmers, farm sector and its rightful share in Krishna waters.
CM has alleged that Andhra Pradesh government’s attitude and stand on Krishna river water sharing is harming Telangana farmers’ interests.
Telangana state cabinet has already decided to get the state’s rightful share of the allocation of water and to continue hydel power generation to run Telangana’s lift irrigation scheme.
Against this background, the state government has decided to make its voice heard in the courts, tribunals and in the coming session of the Parliament. The state government has also been putting pressure on the Union government to finalise its share of allocation of water. It has decided to strongly put forth its argument before the tribunal, the Krishna River Management Board (KRMB) and other such platforms.
Chief Minister has chaired a review meeting for the strategy to be adopted to get the state its rightful allocation of water and the future course of action. In the review meeting, which lasted for over six hours, the way Telangana was subjected to injustices for several decades in terms of irrigation water was discussed at length and in depth.
