Congress MP A Revanth Reddy today alleged that the Telangana Chief Minister KCR and his AP counterpart Y S Jaganmohan Reddy were playing games over the issue of the Pothireddypadu project.
He said that it was impossible to assume that KCR and Jagan were not hand in glove on the issue.
He alleged that KCR had given an assurance to Jagan on the issue during his visit to YSRCP MLA R K Roja's residence. He claimed that KCR and Jagan had met twice on the issue of irrigation projects, and that AP minister Anil Kumar had also confirmed the meeting of the two CMs.
He said that the proposal to lift water from Pothireddypadu was approved by AP cabinet in December last year and that the GO was issued by the neighbouring government on May 5, which could only mean that KCR had known about this long back.
He vowed he would stall the Pothireddypadu works on behalf of the Congress.
He also alleged that KCR had never given any kind of importance to the irrigation projects of south Telangana.
