KCR Heading For A Tussle With YS Jagan Over Krishna Water Row:- Things have been extremely good between the Chief Ministers of Telugu states KCR and YS Jaganmohan Reddy. The duo even exchanged words and worked to support each other from the past one year. KCR and YS Jagan even resolved several internal disputes after the bifurcation of Andhra Pradesh into AP and Telangana. KCR even invited YS Jagan for the inauguration of the Kaleshwaram project which was the prestigious one for Telangana. But things changed recently because of the tussle for Krishna water. KCR is quite angry at the move of Andhra Pradesh.
YS Jagan issued a government order on May 5th which was proposed to take the Rayalaseema Lift Irrigation Scheme at the cost of Rs 7045 crores. Te project utilizes 3 TMC of water per day from Sangameswaram to Srisailam. KCR is not happy with the move and is strict on his stand. KCR warned that the construction without the apex council's notice will be illegal. The Telangana government is in plans to approach the top courts to stall the plans of AP. Both the Chief Ministers are said to be in loggerheads after the move made by YS Jagan. With KCR not ready to compromise on this, we have to see if YS Jagan steps down for a compromise.
