AP's Projects Illegal: Telangana Irrigation Secretary

Rajat Kumar was speaking to the media before attending the KRMB meeting in Hyderabad.
Hyderabad | 1st September 2021
Telangana's Principal Secretary of Irrigation Rajat Kumar today said that the Telangana statehood movement was primarily for water share, and that AP building illegal irrigation projects undid the entire effort.

Kumar was speaking to the media before attending the Krishna River Management Board meeting in Hyderabad, which was also being attended by officials of the AP government.

The Rayalaseema lift irrigation and the Pothireddypadu projects were illegal, Kumar claimed. AP had violated norms in building the projects, and the issue had been brought to the notice of the board, which then prevented related works, he said.

Kumar told mediapersons that the state government had been urging the board to allot water in a 50:50 ratio between Telangana and AP.

"We will continue to demand the same," he said.

The board was conducting the meeting upon an appeal by the two states on water allocation. AP is seeking a 70:30 share, and Telangana a 50:50, share of the river's waters.

For the unversed, the board had previously stalled some works in the AP region following NGT instructions.
