Water Sharing With Telangana Rocks Andhra Pradesh Assembly; Reddy, Naidu Trade Barbs
Amid the noisy scenes, Reddy heaped praise on Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao for being magnanimous towards Andhra Pradesh in agreeing to share Godavari river waters that would help stabilise huge ayacut under Krishna.
In a sharp attack on Naidu, Reddy said Naidu in his capacity of being chief minister could not prevent the construction of either Almatti dam in Karnataka or Kaleshwaram in Telangana.
When Telangana was building Kaleshwaram to lift 3 tmc ft of water, what could Chandrababu Naidu, as Chief Minister for five years, do to prevent it?
"I went for the inauguration only after the Kaleshwaram project was completed.
When he was Chief Minister here and Telangana was building that project, I am asking, was Chandrababu rearing donkeys," Jagan said.
