Amaravati, July 7:

Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy in a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi urged him to prevail upon the State of Telangana to stop at once the indiscriminate drawal of water solely for power generation when there is no need for irrigation, and to follow the established norms and protocols and directions of the Krishna River Management Board (KRMB).
The Chief Minister requested Mr Modi to ensure that the jurisdiction of KRMB be notified immediately and that all the offtakes which include water for irrigation, power and drinking water on common reservoirs of both the states be kept under the control of KRMB with CISF security for effective Operation and Maintenance in the interest of both the States and in compliance with the provisions of APR Act, 2014.
