After the Andhra Pradesh government moved to the Supreme Court and the Centre against the Telangana power generation and irrigation projects, Telangana Special Chief Secretary Rajat Kumar on Monday said that the central government has to take a call on the state share of water in the Krishna River.
Rajat Kumar held a meeting with officials concerned and discussed the Gazette notification released by the Centre.
He said that until the Centre gives clarity on Telangana share in Krishna River, it has to offer 405.5 tmc which is half of 811 tmc water that should be given to Telangana.
The notification brought the rivers and projects under the purview of the boards to take a final call with the Central security forces to give waters. This was being objected to by both States.
Rajat Kumar said that a plan of action will be ready on the State share of water.
The engineers, legal experts and officers of the irrigation projects attended the meeting.
Rajat Kumar said that the State government is ready to submit detailed project reports to the Union Jal Shakti Minister on the new projects in the State.
