      Is there any sense in this question ?
      Telangana is paying its part and AP its part of all the Loan Payments taken from all bodies that includes JICA for Srisailam in proportion of Population of both states
      While the Benefit is not in proportion of population
      ZERO water in Srirsailam to Telangana for Irrigation till date and not even 100 TMC water in Nagarjuna Sagar for Telangana while AP got More than 250 TMC by Right and Krishna Delta another 150 TMC ..
      Without Nagarjuna Sagar impounding Water Prakasham Barrage can’t irrigate more than 50 water goes to Sea.

      Nagarjuna Sagar against 42% it Got less 20% benegit in Nagarjuna Sagar
      against 42 % Cost hit ZERO benefit in Irrigation from Srisailam..

      The injustice in Krishna water for Irrigation use in Telangana is beyond comprehension
