YSR Congress has taken serious objection to the Centre’s affidavit on Krishna water sharing and said TDP government has been mortgaging the state’s interests for its personal and political gains.
‘Centre filing an affidavit that the redistribution of the Krishna waters should be done between the two states of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana insulating the upper riparian states of Maharshtra and Karnataka goes against the interest of the state which is at the tail end and Chandrababu Naidu making no efforts to reverse the situation is nothing short of mortgaging the interest of the State at Delhi,’ Party MLA G Srikanth Reddy told reporters here on Wednesday.
Distributing the allocated share of 811 TMC between the lower riparian states would affect the irrigation system and the Krishna Water Tribunal has to reallocate the sharing proportion of all the four states.
‘Chandrababu Naidu has not been raising this issue and has allowed the Centre to take a stand which goes against the interests of the State and continues to be a coalition partner of NDA despite such disdain which shows it is a sell-out and the politics of compromise are in full play,’ he said.
Chandrababu Naidu has done the same while HD Deve Gowda was Prime Minister and allowed illegal constructions to come in the upper state arresting Krishna waters. ‘Now when the Centre has openly told the apex court that the redistribution should be done among Andhra Pradesh and Telangana, the Chief Minister failed to protest which shows his policies of compromise,’ he said adding that the Party President YS Jagan Mohan Reddy had earlier written a letter to the Prime Minister about the injustice being meted out to Andhra Pradesh in the sharing of Krishna River waters.
