The cordial relationship adopted by Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao with the Karnataka government to overcome the drinking water problem of the people of the erstwhile Mahabubnagar district has yielded results.
To fulfill the drinking water needs of the erstwhile district's people, the Karnataka government has decided to release 2.5 TMC of water from the Narayanpur reservoir to Jurala.
In view of the water levels steeply coming down in the reservoirs of the erstwhile Mahabubnagar district, KCR had requested his Karnataka counterpart H D Kumaraswamy for release of the water. Accordingly, the Karnataka CM, after discussing with the officials concerned, decided to release the water.
Kumaraswamy personally telephoned KCR and informed him about this.
KCR described the gesture of his Karnataka counterpart as kind to Mahabubnagar's people, and conveyed his thanks to Kumaraswamy on their behalf. Both the CMs have expressed their desire that the cordial and friendly relationship between the two States should continue forever.
Water supply to Jurala will commence this evening.
