Telangana Government Filed Petition In SC
The Krishna water war between Telangana & Andhra States reached agin the peaks, Yesterday Telangana Government Filed Petition in Supreme Court seeking justice to the state.
If we go in detail, Telangana State Government filed petition on Supreme Court to direct the Centre to set up a statutory tribunal to determine its share of the Krishna river water. According to news, senior advocate C S Vaidyanathan who is representing Telangana State Government submitted before a bench of Justices Dipak Misra and Prafulla C Pant that a fresh reference needed to be sent to Krishna Water Dispute Tribunal II for fresh water allocation after the passage of the Re-organisation of the State of Andhra Pradesh Act 2015.
Vaidyanathan continuing his arguments on behalf of the Telangana government said the new State should not be treated as a part of the previous bigger State or carved out of the same. The new State happened because of the injustices meted to it in the larger State in the form of deprivation of the river waters.
According to advocate Vaidyanathan, Telangana should be treated as a new State in India and in the Krishna River Basin and hence, there should be a review of water allocations of the four States now. This could be done through the constitution of a new Tribunal too, he argued. Keeping all the issues under the 1956 Inter-State River Water Disputes Act open, the court asked the Centre’s counsel to be prepared to respond to all questions of law. The court made it clear that no adjournment will be given on October 15th.
