The first day of Andhra Pradesh Assembly Budget sessions had a very interesting discussion. As the sessions started Telugu Desam MLAs questioned why CM Jagan went to Kaleshwaram Project’s inauguration. In counter Jagan asked what was the previous TDP government doing when the project was started in their tenure.
Jagan defended his stand going to Kaleshwaram’s opening ceremony and praised Telangana CM KCR. “To maintain good relations with neighboring states, I did go to Telangana. In fact KCR has said that Godavari river water will be diverted to Nagarjuna sagar and Srisailam projects which can not only give water to just Telangana districts but also to Rayalaseema and four other districts in Andhra Pradesh. He was magnanimous,” said Jagan.
Instead of appreciating his efforts, we are fighting with him and upper states are building one project after another and we are just confining ourselves filing petitions in the courts where the solution is taking decades, stated Jagan.
Before that opposition leader Chandrababu Naidu spoke and added that earlier Jagan called KCR as Hilter and also said Andhra Pradesh state will become another Pakistan with Kaleshwaram Project. “It’s true that the allocation of water resources is an issue between the Telugu states and TDP is continuously trying to bring a solution to it. Jagan is thinking that if he talks louder we will calm down but that won’t happen in the assembly and we will continue to fight for the rights of five crore Andhra people,” said Chandrababu.
