TDP irked by delay in water release to delta

Staff Reporter

VIJAYAWADA: The Telugu Desam Party district unit has expressed dissatisfaction over the Government not giving an assurance at Tuesday's all-party meeting on releasing water to the Krishna delta. The party district leadership has given a call for "Chalo Bandar" on July 1 when the delta farmers will lay a siege to the District Collectorate. The TDP has given an open invitation to all farmers to join the agitation and fight for justice.

Addressing a press conference here on Tuesday, the TDP district unit general secretary and Nandigama MLA, Devineni Umamaheswara Rao, said the all-party meeting conducted at Sub-Collector's Office yielded no result. The Chief Minister and the district ministers talked of releasing water by July 1. In that case, water had to be released on June 26 if it was to reach the agricultural fields in delta by July 1. The deadline was already over. Mr. Rao said that the Government was trying to drag on the issue and finally wash its hands off. The farmers would not remain silent if their right to water was denied.
