Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao on Wednesday announced in the Legislative Assembly that he would personally argue before Krishna Water Disputes Tribunal seeking legitimate share of water for TS. He said he will create history as the first CM to argue before any tribunal.
“I myself will represent the Telangana government and argue before the Krishna tribunal. I will create a history by arguing the case in my capacity as CM,” Mr Rao said amid applause from the ruling benches.
He alleged that the undivided AP government subjected Telangana area to gross injustice over allocation of Krishna water.
“Telangana movement was all about funds, water and jobs. There is no question of compromising on these three issues, come what may,” he said. He urged all political parties in the state to join hands by keeping aside their political differences to protect the interests of Telangana.
“We have to fight together to get our legitimate share. The interests of Telangana and its people are more important for all of us than anything else. We should not allow our political differences to come in the way of the development of Telangana,” Mr Rao said.
He promised to hold district-wise meetings with ministers, MLAs and other public representatives from all the parties to arrive at a consensus on how to go forward for effective implementation of irrigation schemes.
