Stop Construction of RDS Right Canal: Govt Urges KRMB

Hyderabad, July 20 (Hydnow): The State government has urged that the Krishna River Management Board (KRMB) should direct the YSRCP government to stop the construction of RDS right canal works in Andhra Pradesh.

In a letter to the Board Chairman here on Wednesday, Irrigation and Command Area Development (I&CAD) department Engineer-in-Chief (General) C Muralidhar urged to depute a team to inspect RDS right canal site to ascertain the fact of construction by AP in violation of Krishna Water Disputes Tribunal-I (KWDT-I) award and provisions of Andhra Pradesh Reorganization Act (APRA)- 2014.

Muralidhar said the general enbloc liberty doesn’t apply to AP in the K-8 sub-basin and it cannot take up RDS right canal unless and until the tribunal order allocating water to this project is published by the Central government in its official gazette and approved by the Ministry of Jal Shakti or Central Water Commission.

The KWDT-II has framed an issue on RDS right canal and proceedings are going on. The tour program of KRMB to RDS anicut on January 1, 2022, included the visit to RDS right canal. But, KRMB failed to inspect the same and did not even mention about the status of construction based on local inquiry in its discussion, Muralidhar said. (Hydnow)
