A few days ago, Telangana Water Resources Minister, Harish Rao wrote a letter to the Union Water Resources Ministry alleging that Krishna River Board Management Secretary is being in favor of Andhra Pradesh in Water issues.
Telangana Government exerted pressure on the central government on this issue and finally, the ministry changed the Board Secretary. Harish Rao successfully ‘handled’ the Krishna Board in this issue and sent a message to the new Board Secretary.
The new board secretary will get to know the power of Telangana government at the Delhi level and will act ‘accordingly’ in favor of Telangana in future issues, political experts opine. It has to be seen how the new secretary does going forward!
