Hyderabad, February 16
The Telangana government was disappointed with the Bajaj committee, which was deputed to study the sharing of Godavari and Krishna waters between sibling states of Telangana and Andhra Pradesh. The government alleged that the committee is showing favoritism.
Bajaj committee, after its study, held discussions with the irrigation department officials of both the states for two days. Both the states put their arguments before the committee.
After meeting with AP Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu and officials at Vijayawada on Wednesday, the committee has changed its word, alleged TS government adviser on irrigation R Vidyasagar Rao.
He said the TS government will file a complaint with the Union water resources ministry over the Bajaj committee which said that it was not their job to solve Godavari river waters issue. He also found fault with the committee for not studying the Telangana share in Polavaram and Pattiseema projects.
Meanwhile, the committee members felt there are only petty problems between the two states and both the CMs are ready to solve them amicably. Final report will be prepared only after studying the reports given by irrigation department officials.
Earlier Bajaj committee met Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao at his camp office in Hyderabad. KCR explained to the committee about the injustices done to the state in water allotments. He requested the committee to draft separate reports on the sharing of surplus water and during less water availability.
