Release of Sagar water demanded

VIJAYAWADA, AUG.14. The Telugu Desam Party (TDP) demanded that the State Government release 10,000 cusecs from the Nagarjunasagar reservoir immediately.

The TDP district president, T.D. Janardhana Rao, in a statement said the district committee met on Saturday and reviewed the situation. Though the gates were lifted due to the flood at Prakasam barrage water did not reach the tail-end areas in the Krishna Delta. It was therefore mandatory for the Government to release 10,000 cusecs immediately.

The State Government was playing truant with the Krishna delta. Krishna water was being diverted at Pothireddipalli regulator, but not a drop was being released from Nagarjunasagar for the delta.
