Open Letter to Union Minister of Water Resource – Ms Uma Bharati


Union Cabinet Minister for Water Resources, River Development and Ganga Rejuvenation

Sushri Uma Bharati Ji

As per AP Re-organization Act

THE ELEVENTH SCHEDULE [See section 85(7)(e)]
Principles governing the functioning of the River Management Boards.

“The allocations made by the River Water Tribunals with regard to various projects
on Godavari and Krishna Rivers or for the regions of the existing State of Andhra Pradesh,
in respect of assured water shall remain the same.”

As per the Andhra Pradesh Official Record :

Srisailam Left Bank Canal Water Requirement is 30 TMC

This is absolutely up to Govt of Telangana how and where it wants to use this Water from River Krishna, Project not Completed gives no Right to AP to Divert this Unless Telangana finds no alternate Use of this Water.

Water priorities specified in the Act do not and can not override the Allocation to the State itself?

How fair is it for Andhra Pradesh State Which today has Under its Reservoirs impounded as of 3rd  November 2014 as per its own On-line Public Data at  Login Guest/Guest credentials is

2014 Nov 03 Krishna River Water AP and Telangana Facts

With Andhra Pradesh Already Having Impounded Water of 445 TMC in all its Reservoirs Under Krishna Basin and Telangana is not having even 85 TMC water for its irrigation.

Krishna Water Board Instead of Asking Andhra Pradesh as to whether the State has allocation for this 445 TMC Water ? and Why some of this Water Can not be Utilized to Help Telangana Generate Power and Still water Remains for Irrigation through Nagarjuna Sagar and Pulichitala and Krishna Delta Water Schemes has passed an Abrbitrary and Inexplicable order to restrict Telangana State that is nothing But Denial of Telangana State’s Own Share of Allocation ..

What sort of Justice is this to the State of Telangana  ? an Arid State where farmers do their agriculture largely based on pumped irrigation where Center is denying both Water and Power ?
