Telangana Chief Minister K. Chandrashekar Rao (KCR) has announced plans for a massive public meeting in Nalgonda district center on the 13th of this month to defend Telangana’s irrigation water rights. At a meeting held today with party MLAs, former ministers, and public representatives from the Krishna basin at Telangana Bhavan, KCR denounced what he termed as the state government’s “anti-Telangana attitude.”
During the gathering, KCR emphasized his commitment to protecting Telangana’s irrigation rights, drawing parallels with the historic Nadu movement. He lamented the detrimental impact of the state government’s decisions on the irrigation water rights of farmers in South Telangana’s Krishna basin, attributing it to the ill-conceived approach of the Congress government. KCR expressed concern that these decisions could hinder future project completion but remained resolute in his determination to reverse this trend with the support of the public.
