KCR Slams Centre For Failing To Resolve Water Disputes

Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao today lashed out at the Centre for failing to resolve the water disputes between riparian States, and said that the union government's "bad" policies and its "inefficiency" were making the disputes more complicated rather than resolving them.

Addressing a public meeting at Kothagudem after the inauguration of the Integrated District Collectorate Complex, the CM said that India was blessed with huge natural resources, including availability of 1.70 lakh TMCs of river waters every year, of which 70,000 TMCs evaporated while another 70,000 TMCs flowed through the Krishna, Godavari, Ganga and Narmada rivers.

"Unfortunately, we are not able to utilise more than 20,000 TMCs of water, and about 50,000 TMCs are just going into the sea. Due to the inefficiency of the union government, the river waters are not being used properly, leading to the water disputes between riparian States," KCR said.

Referring to the Krishna river water sharing issue, the CM said that a tribunal had been constituted to resolve the disputes between the riparian States, but unfortunately for the last 20 years the matter was still at an argument level.

"Even after 20 years, the Krishna river water sharing disputes between the riparian States have remained pending due to the inefficiency of the union government," KCR said.

He lamented that despite the availability of abundant resources across sectors, successive governments at the Centre had in general failed to ensure their optimum utilisation, and that due to the union government not performing on par with Telangana, the State had lost a GSDP of over Rs 3 lakh crore as against its current GSDP of Rs 11.5 lakh crore.

Claiming that Telangana had been registering unprecedented development in various sectors since the formation of the State, and was also showing a path for development to the nation, KCR urged the people to extend their support to the Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRS) for its future endeavours.

On the occasion, the Chief Minister announced a sanction of Rs 80 crore each to the Palvoncha and Kothagudem municipalities. Similarly, he said that Rs 25 crore each was being sanctioned to the Yellandu and Manuguru municipalities.

He also promised that efforts would be made to provide three phase power supply to the villages located in the agency areas, and also that house sites would be given to all journalists working in the district.

Earlier, KCR also showered funds and other gifts on the people of Mahabubabad district. He allocated Rs 10 lakh each for all the 461 gram panchayats in the district, along with Rs 50 crore to the Mahabubabad municipality and Rs 25 crore each to the Thorrur, Dornakal and Maripeda municipalities.
