Earlier NTR and Chandrababu, later YS Rajashekar Reddy resorted to divert the Krishna river without any approvals and voilating all rules including riparian rights. Now Jaganmohan Reddy is resorting to same game, to win political challenge thrown by Chandrababu by encouraging defections, in the name of Krishna water.
YSR diverted Krishna water to Kadapa, Nellore and Chittoor depriving riparian districts Kurnool and Ananthapur of their right share of water. Now Jagan is playing fidel to rake up the emotions of Kurnool people against Mahabubnagar projects.
Though Chandrababu and YSR ruled the state for long time, they did not add up a single TMC of water Mahabubnagar. The ditched Mahabubnagar in gravest way. Though they planned lift irrigation projects, intentionally ignored planning reservoirs enroute the canals, where as in Rayalaseema built number of reservoirs on lift projects.
