Hyderabad: TS irrigation minister T. Harish Rao on Tuesday requested Union water resources minister Uma Bharti to address the concerns of the state in the proposed Apex Council meeting with CMs of TS and AP over utilisation of Godavari and Krishna waters. Mr Rao urged Ms Bharti to direct the Krishna River Management Board to constitute a supervising body with officials from both the states on the diversion of Krishna waters by AP to Rayalaseema projects through Pothireddypadu Head Regulator without any information.

He said that till the KRMB arranges telemetry systems at the project sites to confirm exact usage of waters by both the states, a supervisory committee should be constituted. Mr Harish Rao also asked Ms Bharti to include in the Apex Council meeting agenda AP’s diverting Godavari waters to Krishna basin through Pattiseema scheme without conceding the share of TS. He said that TS is entitled to its share of the surplus waters of Godavari flowing down to the Bay of Bengal.
