Read comment on CAG report at the end
Dr. S. Jeevananda Reddy
Formerly Chief Technical Advisor – WMO/UN & Expert – FAO/UN
Convenor, Forum for a Sustainable Environment
I am sorry to state that the present report is politically motivated and malaise report. Some time back I wrote a letter to Hon’ble Prime Minister of India, Dr. Manmohan Singh, condemning the report by CAG and observations made by Montek Singh Ahluwalia the deputy chairman of planning commission of India on the Jalayagnam at the meeting with Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister and other officials during the Plan Allocation meeting. None understood the objective of Jalayagnam initiated by Dr. Y. S. Rajashekar Reddy as it goes against certain vested interests. He was looking at development of rural Andhra Pradesh. Vested groups attribute motives for everything what he initiated after his death including those who appreciated them when he was alive. Unfortunately, after his death execution of irrigation projects is plagued by regional politics on one side and inter-state politics on the other. Everybody wants encash the politics for their selfish gains. The objective is if I am not getting, other should not get. They are happy if Krishna & Godavari water goes as waste in to Bay of Bengal – hundreds and thousands of TMC of water every year. Let me come to the point of present report:
All the statistics are bogus. Let me explain this with three examples.
1. Surplus water from Krishna River: Bachawat tribunal allowed Andhra Pradesh to use the surplus water around 450 TMC of water. Of this around 50% is allowed dry Rayalaseema to use; while the rest is allowed to use at 25% each of dry Coastal Andhra and dry Telangana. In this, in deficit years the three regions have no claim but whatever is surplus water the three regions can share at 2 : 1 : 1 ration. To use such water government of Andhra Pradesh has to build projects, which will not be cleared by Central Government but state government has to clear them – they have to be brought to the notice of CWC. During TDP time such projects were identified and laid foundation stones – by N.T.R. and later by N. Chandrababu Naiudu second time – but they were not built. Just at that time Dr. Y. S. Rajashekar Reddy [Dr. YSR] became the Chief Minister of the state and proposed Jalayagnam in which these projects were also included and started building the projects. He was aware that before the Bachawat tribunal period expires these are to be executed to get water allocations as was done earlier. But, unfortunately some politicians created hurdles at every stage just basically because, if these projects are not completed the surplus water, which hither to be utilized illegally by North Telangana & north Coastal Andhra – which already benefited by the allocated share of water [811 TMC with 1 : 2 : 3 = Rayalaseema : Telangana : Coastal Andhra] for the last more than two decades. With the projects for surplus water are completed, they may not get this illegal facility. It is like, two cats are fighting on how to share one roti, and the monkey intervened and ate everything. Same thing is now happened with the New Brijesh Kumar Tribunal. This tribunal was handpicked by the Karnataka politician as Law Minister. So this new tribunal re-wrote everything in opposite direction to what Batchawat tribunal defined to favour Karnataka & Maharashtra and eliminated surplus part which was allowed by Batchawat tribunal to use by Andhra Pradesh. The new tribunal changed the statistics, and thus changed the mean flood flow by more than 185 TMC and thus favoured Karnataka to raise the Almatti height. Thus, as a result Andhra Pradesh is going to face drought situation in more than 50% of years, which was less than 25% under Batchawat Tribunal award. Unfortunately, the advisors to Andhra Pradesh irrigation department on this were mostly retired irrigation engineers whose loyalty is with Karnataka and Maharashtra as they were part of Hyderabad state in which parts of Karnataka and Maharashtra was part of Hyderabad State. When Andhra Pradesh state was formed they were joined with their respective states but they stayed here — in their places Rayalaseema and Coastal Andhra added to Hyderabad state under new name called Andhra Pradesh. Here the separate state group TRS is now supporting the Brijesh Kumar verdict – they wanted the benefits must go to Karnataka and Maharashtra and not to Rayalaseema or Coastal Andhra – the reasons as stated above. Neither CAG nor Planning Commission Deputy Chairman or the authors of the present report under stood this aspect.

Question on Agriculture development in Telangana region, post Telangana statehood, if at all it happens.
Apart from Hyderabad, the major contention of Rayalaseema and Coastal Andhra is water in Krishna and Godavari rivers.
1) River Krishna: When I see the map, I see There are atleast 3 major dams on Krishna, and that too the river flows bordering Telangana-Rayalaseema and Telangana-Coastal Andhra, before entering the Krishna delta area. There seems no way to create any new dam, except sharing the existing water in Mahaboobnagar and Nalgonda with Kurnool and Guntur.
2) River Godavari: Flows all the way in Telangana region till Bhadrachalam, before entering Godavari delta region. Do they plan to construct new dams on this river?
Can any of you point me to the right source which details a plan to increase water resources in Telangana region, and improve ariable land?

No matter what madam does we are here to create history.
Even dividing a small peace of land between siblings takes months and months. These are all to distract the voters. There is no cong at the centre in less than 10 months time.
One PIL in SC can stop their plans for ages.
Spinesless cong and tdp trying to divide a state in different ways to stop a 40yr old Lion. That will be the biggest mistake in history.

As expected ..the crooks dont want to free the caged parrot yet.
So it is still the congress bureau of investigation.
41 page proposal but still the parrot is not free !!
Will it be realease on madams birthday too ?
I was thinking they would ask SC to give independence to CBI just before the elections. Because they very much know that they will not be at helm in 2014 and Vadra is very susceptible. Ofcourse i ll just pity chi-be-N and dramoji n co.
YSR Congress launches counteroffensive
The four-page main pamphlet, which warns ‘conspirators’, seeks to pick holes in the way the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has handled the illegal investments cases against YSR Congress president Y.S. Jaganmohan Reddy.
It reiterates the party’s accusation that the Congress has conspired to continue keeping Rajasekhara Reddy’s son in jail.
This pamphlet also ‘exposes’ Tellugu Desam Party (TDP) president N. Chandrababu Naidu of ‘match fixing’ with the Congress. The former is accused of failing as a responsible opposition party in the Assembly by ‘saving’ the ruling party when it faced a no confidence motion.
The second leaflet talks in detail about the inflation by drawing a comparison between governments led by Rajasekhara Reddy, Mr. Chandrababu Naidu and the present one led by N. Kiran Kumar Reddy. Using tables, the YSR Congress has tried to explain to the people not only about the late Chief Minister’s endeavour to keep inflation under check, but also the quantum of additional financial burden imposed on people by price rise under the TDP and the present regimes.
Anyone has the soft copy of this pomplet?
