Krishna wa­ter war wors­ens

Down to Earth - - THE FORTNIGHT - WITH TAMIL NADU

de­mand­ing im­me­di­ate re­lease of wa­ter from the Krishna for drink­ing wa­ter needs of Chen­nai, the strained re­la­tion be­tween Telangana and Andhra Pradesh (AP) is set to worsen. Un­der an agree­ment be­tween Tamil Nadu and the ri­par­ian states of Ma­ha­rash­tra, Kar­nataka and un­di­vided AP, Chen­nai was to get Krishna wa­ter through the Tel­ugu Ganga Project. But the project is un­der AP ter­ri­tory while wa­ter for Chen­nai is re­leased from Sri­sailam reser­voir over which Telangana has rights. Tamil Nadu is now de­mand­ing wa­ter from Andhra Pradesh, which is shift­ing the re­spon­si­bil­ity to Telangana.
