SC to hear all petitions over Krishna water on Aug. 26

104062709-Supreme-Court_6

A three-member bench of the Supreme Court has taken up inquiry into the petition filed by the Telangana State seeking Krishna Waters re-distribution here on Friday.

During arguments, the Maharashtra government expressed its objection on the allegation of the Telangana State that the latter was meted out injustice in distribution of the Krishna Waters. Counsel representing Telangana State argued that Telangana movement was successfully launched for separate State due to gross injustice to Telangana region in the distribution of river waters. In reply, the Maharashtra advocate argued that there was nothing new in the Telangana State’s contention.

The Supreme Court has made it clear that it would take up inquiry into the Telangana State’s petition, including in the cases already on trial. All the petitions over Krishna river water distribution would be placed before the three-member bench on August 26.

Senior Advocate Vaidhyanathan argued on behalf of Telangana State government and Andhyarjun argued on behalf of Maharashtra government. (NSS)
