KCR establishes temporary office in Delhi to ensure Central nod to projects at earliest
When the Board wanted to stop power generation, Telangana Special Chief Secretary Rajat Kumar and other officials from the State registered a strong protest against the same and staged a walkout.
The Board decided to maintain a separate record of surplus water utilisation, though it would not form part of the water utilisation account.
KT Rama Rao advised the authorities to draw micro-level plans to utilise available irrigation water effectively so that it can be diverted to ponds and other small water bodies in the district.
Telangana Irrigation officials express doubts over the functioning of the river management boards, especially during water stress years.
Meanwhile, Telangana officials urged the Krishna River Management Board to visit the Rayalaseema Project and submit a report to the National Green Tribunal on August 9.
Agriculture Minister S Niranjan Reddy said groundnut grown in Telangana, especially in the erstwhile districts of Rangareddy and Mahbubnagar, was of superior quality and high in demand across India.
Andhra's Chief Engineer contended that Telangana planned to draw Godavari water through Kaleshwaram Lift Irrigation Scheme (KLIS), Tupakula Gudem, Devadula, Sitarama and other projects.
TDP leaders observed that serious injustice was being done to the Andhra Pradesh farmers due to “anti-farmer policies” of Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy.
Thanks to the Kaleshwaram Lift Irrigation Scheme (KLIS), the Lower Manair Dam (LMD) is receiving heavy inflows from the Mid Manair Dam (MMD).
As most irrigation projects are receiving good inflows, the authorities concerned are taking measures to divert more Kaleswaram water into various tanks.
TS’ proposed barrage and other projects on Krishna a reaction to AP’s Rayalseema works
Apart from servicing the debt, the State government is also committed to fund 20 capital intensive irrigation projects which are in various stages of construction.
The CM said that since Krishna water is precious, as its volume is coming down, the officials should ensure that not even a single drop of water allotted to the Sate is lost.
