KCR & JAGAN MEETING OVER WATER DISPUTE SET ON OCTOBER 6

 



The Chief Ministers of Telangana and Andhra Pradesh, K. Chandrsekhar Rao and Jagan Mohan Reddy will meet to discuss water disputes over Godavari and Krishna waters. The two chief ministers will meet in presence of Gajendra Singh Shekhawat, the Union Cabinet Minister of Jal Shakti. Both states have raised disputes over the usage of two important rivers Krishna and Godavari. Telangana government have complained to Krishna Board that Andhra Pradesh government had increased the capacity for Rayalseema Irrigation Project.

Telangana primary concerns are that Andhra government is using more than allocated water for its irrigation projects across the state. The meeting will not certainly guarantee favourable outcomes for both states and can end in a stalemate. On the other hand, the presence of union cabinet minister can prove to be a key factor for the states to put the dispute to rest.
