Vijayawada: Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy rebutted TDP chief Chandrababu Naidu’s allegations in the legislative assembly on Thursday that the state government was mortgaging the interest of the state to Telangana over Kaleshwaram project.
The chief minister told the house that it was during Chandrababu Naidu’s tenure as chief minister of undivided Andhra Pradesh that the Karnataka government had raised the height of the Almatti dam, thereby impacting the river water share of Andhra Pradesh.
Jagan clarified that there would be a bilateral agreement between both states on the sharing of waters—Godavari and Krishna.
The Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister also reminded TDP members including Chandrababu that close to 65% of Godavari water flowed into Pranhita and Indrawati tributaries while Sabari in Andhra Pradesh got only 11%.
Jagan added that if both states could come to a cordial and harmonious understanding over sharing of water resources, people of both the states would benefit.
