The TRS on Friday demanded an explanation from Chief Minister N. Kiran Kumar Reddy over the failure of the State government in pleading the Babli case in the Supreme Court in a proper manner. The party said the government’s negligence shown in the case has jeopardised the region’s interests.

Adilabad MLA Jogu Ramanna said the Babli project is certain to render Telangana region a desert as flow of water in the Godavari will be controlled by Maharashtra.
