HYDERABAD: A day after asking the Centre to constitute a new tribunal on Krishna river water sharing, Telangana has urged the Krishna River Management Board (KRMB) to restrain AP from diverting Krishna water outside the basin.
It also urged the KRMB to allow 50:50 sharing of water for both states for this water year 2021-22 till finalisation of Krishna Water Disputes Tribunal-II (KWDT) decision.
In a letter to the KRMB, irrigation department engineer-in-chief C Muralidhar said AP has large unapproved and unauthorised diversion capability of 4.7 tmcft per day from Srisailam and over 300 tmcft of storages in Penna and other basins where it can store the diverted water from Krishna river. Telangana has only storage capacity of 0.28 tmcft per day that too through lifting of water, he pointed out. tnn
