Water War Between AP, Telangana At Nagarjuna Sagar

The rift between the governments surfaced once again with the Telangana irrigation officials stopping the release of water to the right bank canal.
Hyderabad | 28th February 2018
The rift between the Telangana and the Andhra Pradesh governments surfaced once again at the Nagarjuna Sagar project today with the Telangana irrigation officials stopping the release of water to the right bank canal.

The Andhra Pradesh officials immediately objected to the stopping of the water release even before the completion of their state's share, and demanded that the Telangana government release water to the right canal immediately.

The Krishna Board has allocated 10.5 tmcft of water to Andhra Pradesh from the Nagarjuna Sagar and the state has so far drawn only 10.2 tmcft.

The AP officials asked their Telangana counterparts for an explanation for why the latter stopped water supply before the completion of AP's share. In a precautionary measure, both the states deployed huge police forces on the Sagar dam.
