Andhra rulers milked TS resources: Kavitha

TRS member in Lok Sabha from Nizamabad Kalvakuntla Kavitha Saturday alleged that 60-year rule by Seemandhra leaders destroyed natural resources of Telangana region and turned it into a drought-stricken part besides deliberately ignoring the irrigation projects.

Speaking to mediapersons at TRS Bhavan here on Saturday, Kavitha lashed out at AP Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu for spewing venom on Telangana State even after the State was bifurcated a year ago. She accused Naidu of exerting pressure on the Centre against Palamur and Nakkalagandi projects in Telangana State.

The Palamur project is aimed at irrigating 10 lakh acres in Mahbubnagar and Ranga Reddy districts besides stabilising capacity of 40 lakh acres. She alleged that Naidu deliberately turned Nizamabad district and others like Palamur into deserts besides encouraging commissions through projects and schemes.

The TD leaders from Telangana should respond why they could not prevent Andhra leaders from drawing waters from RDS project, she said.Naidu’s attempts against Telangana development would not fructify as the TRS Government was committed to keep its promises of completing irrigation projects and others, she asserted. Kavitha rubbished aside the criticism of the Opposition parties on Mission Kakatiya.

Alleging that Pulichintala project was meant for giving waters to Andhra region, she said gross injustice was being meted out to farmers with agriculture lands under Jurala project. Andhra Pradesh Government is ought to give 30 tmcft to Telangana from Polavaram project which got national status, she added.
