YSRC chief YS Jaganmohan Reddy today met President Pranab Mukharjee and appraised him of the situation in AP. He requested the president to ensure that the state would get Special Category Status, as per the promise made during the enactment of Reorganization Act.
He urged the President to use his good offices in getting the Palamuu- Ranga Reddy Lift Irrigation scheme stopped at once. “The TRS government in Telangana is going ahead with 90 TMC Lift Irrigation scheme without approval from the apex council of Godavari or Krishna river boards constituted under AP Reorganization Act 2014. This is likely to have adverse effect on Rayalaseema, prakasham, Nellore and Krishna ayacut in AP. It has to be stopped immediately” he stated in his representation to the President.
