In a setback to the Andhra Pradesh government led by Y S Jaganmohan Reddy, the Krishna River Water Management Board (KRMB) snubbed it over its plan to draw 3 TMC water at Pothireddipadu.

The board expressed a sort of displeasure at the AP government for taking a unilateral decision without consulting the apex body.

KRMB instructed the government to give an immediate clarification on GO 203, and the decision to draw 3 TMC from the Srisailam project.

The board wrote a letter to AP's Special Chief Secretary for Irrigation Aadityanath Das seeking the clarification.

The board opined that GO 203 was against the AP Reorganization Act.

The board reaction comes after the Telangana government and opposition parties demanded action to nullify the AP plan to draw the Krishna river "illegally". Telangana's Principal Secretary for Irrigation Rajat Kumar had complained to the board on the issue.

The Telangana government accused the AP government of proposing to draw waters in a manner that would deprive waters to the previous Palamur project, and the Ranga Reddy and Nalgonda districts. The Telangana government had also threatened to move the Supreme Court against the AP government's decision.

Telangan also complained to the board that despite repeated appeals telemetry had not been set up at the project site.
