Telangana Ministers lambasted the Andhra Pradesh government on Friday for ‘illegally’ diverting Krishna river waters for its own use.
The TS officials contended that Andhra Pradesh had assured waters of 19 tmcft for Srisailam Right Bank Canal and 15 tmcft for Chennai drinking water scheme from Srisailam.
Nandyal MP Pocha Brahmananda Reddy said the Telangana leaders were trying to create disputes between the farmers of AP and Telangana for their political gains.
The federation claimed that Telangana government took up illegal projects to draw 255 TMC from Srisailam project and that they would pose a threat to 30 lakh acres of ayacut in Andhra Pradesh.
The minister said that though the CM wanted to maintain cordial relations with the neighbouring States, Andhra Pradesh was violating certain rules.
The government will also highlight and explain to people how AP’s illegal projects are detrimental to the interests of Telangana.

Though all these employees had opted for TS, they were allotted to AP by the CR Kamalanathan Committee after the State bifurcation in 2014.
