With the intensified war of water, the Andhra Pradesh (A.P.,) Government knocked the door of the Supreme Court (SC.)  On the 14th of July, the State Government filed a petition against the utilisation of Krishna River water by Telangana. 

In the petition, the A.P., Government denied the allegations of the Telangana Government, that latter is depriving its rightful share in Krishna water by generating 100 per cent hydel power in violation of the KRMB protocols.  In the plea, the Yuvajana Sramika Rythu Congress Party (YSRCP) Government urged the apex court to give directions to the Central Government for notifying the jurisdiction of the Krishna River Management Board and take operation control of interstate irrigation projects.

It also requested the Top Court to cancel the G.O. (government order) released by the Telangana government on the 28th of June 28.

The step of filing a plea in the Supreme Court was taken after various complaints with the KRMB and request of the Central Government’s intervention.

The ongoing issue between the two Telugu states, Andhra Pradesh and Telangana, intensified with allegations from each other against each other.

Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy, the Chief Minister of A.P., recently wrote to Prime Minister Narendra Modi regarding the same.  The YSRCP Member of Parliament (MP) Vijayasai Reddy also met with the Union Jal Shakti Minister Gajendra Singh Shekhawat regarding the Krishna River issue.

However, when there was no satisfactory result of the complaints and letters, the A.P., Government decided to take the matter to the SC. 

According to sources, in the petition, the YSRCP Government would request the Top Court to oversee the agreements between the two states and orders of various tribunals on water sharing are properly implemented.

It is to be noted, the Krishna River water dispute between Andhra Pradesh and Telangana is continuing over the Rayalaseema Lift Irrigation work.  The illegal construction and projects on the banks of the Krishna and the Godavari rivers by both the Telangana Government and the Andhra Pradesh Government is a long pending matter, which intensified in the past few months.  The matter intensified with a war of words between the Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy led Andhra Pradesh Government and the K. Chandrashekar Rao led Telangana Government, seeking intervention of the KRMB and the Central Government.
