Mahila cadres of the YSRC formed a human chain at the Ambedkar Statue Junction here on Saturday evening and took out an impressive procession carrying plastic vessels on their heads, to symbolize that the State bifurcation would cause a water crisis in the Seemandhra region. The protesters raised slogans in favour of Samaikyandhra and flayed the Congress leadership and the Central government for their silence on the ongoing agitations for the last two months.
The YSRC district mahila president P.V. Gayatri said that the State division would lead to a severe water crisis in Seemandhra region. She said that with many water sources from Srikakulam to Chittoor districts having salt water, the region was completely dependant on the Godavari and Krishna rivers for drinking water purpose and irrigation needs.
