YS Jagan, KCR to Meet on Sept. 24 over Godavari Water Issue:- To settle a roadmap to divert the Godavari river water to Krishna basin, Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister YS Jaganmohan Reddy and his Telangana counterpart K Chandrasekhar Rao are scheduled to meet on September 24.
The plan to divert Godavari waters to Krishna basin comes in a bid to alleviate water problem and related post-bifurcation issues in both Telangana and Andhra Pradesh.
The meeting will have engineers from both the Telugu states scheduled to take place in Pragati Bhavan, Hyderabad.
Since YSR Congress Party came into power in Andhra Pradesh, both the chief ministers have met more than three times to hold talks on various issues including river water sharing, several pending division issues under the provisions of AP Reorganization Act, 2014, and many more.
KCR recently announced in the Assembly that water from the Godavari was being diverted to the Krishna basin and the meeting has been scheduled.
Both Telangana and Andhra Pradesh governments are in a resolute manner on using waters from the Godavari to alleviate water problems in Rayalaseema region in Andhra Pradesh and Palamuru Nalgonda areas in Telangana.
According to reports, the basic idea of both the governments is to take four TMC of Godavari water to the Nagarjuna Sagar and the Srisailam projects, by that means providing water for both drinking and irrigation to several parts of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana.
