Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao lashed out at former Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu over his comments on Telangana's irrigation projects and 'thoughtless criticism'
Speaking at Yedula after visiting some Palamuru Ranga Reddy Lift Irrigation Project (PRLIP) sites, KCR made it clear that the TRS government will not be distracted by such criticism and would complete PRLIP as promised to provide irrigation to 15 lakh to 20 lakh acres through the project.
“Chandrababu Naidu has been speaking about irrigation projects and efforts of AP and Telangana to link Godavari and Krishna rivers as something that cannot be done. His words carry a mean streak. The problem is that people like him believe that everyone else is like him and think similarly,” Chandrashekhar Rao said.
“All he did was pick quarrels with neighbouring States. For instance, on Babli (project), he got into a row with Maharashtra but the end result was zero. The ‘basti mein sawal’ attitude, running to courts, does not achieve anything,” pointed out Rao.
KCR was all praise for AP's current Chief Minister Jaganmohan Reddy and said that after Jagan became the Chief Minister, the relations between the two Telugu states have become better than ever.
“On the other hand, the current AP Chief Minister (Y S Jaganmohan Reddy) and I are working together to explore how Godavari can be linked with Krishna. When AP came up with the proposal, we welcomed it and officials have been discussing the options on how to go about it. We may have a final plan by our next meeting,” he said.
