The recent agreement entered between Telangana and Maharastra governments on construction of projects on river Godavari has turned into a political issue between two Telugu states.
YSRC asked Chandrababu Naidu as to why he is maintaining stoic silence on the projects as Andhra Pradesh will be badly affected with the projects taken up by Telangana.
While KCR has been on an agreement signing spree with Maharashtra, Naidu did not even question him though the state division act clearly mentions that Andhra Pradesh should be a party to all water sharing agreements,' party leader Vasireddy Padma said.
To build a project on Krishna or Godavari rivers permission from the apex body, Central Water Commission and other relevant authorities are required and the consent of Andhra Pradesh should be taken.
If KCR has his way and builds projects without being questioned, Godavari delta will become a desert and being silent at this juncture is nothing but mortgaging the interest of State for personal gains, she said adding that KCR stating that his state's share of Godavari waters is 954 TMC has to be contested. Even the TDP ministers in the Union cabinet do not speak out putting the farmers' future in a quandary.
