Naidu responsible for Krishna water woes

Nalgonda, Feb 18, 2013:
Questioning TDP chief Chandrababu Naidu over his silence as CM when the
Karnataka Government increased the height of Almatty and Narayanpur dams during
his regime, Smt. Y. S. Sharmila heckled at Naidu’s proposal to stage Dharna for
Krishna waters.

Addressing a mammoth
public meeting at Miryalaguda during her Maro Praja Prasthanam Padayatra on 69th
day on Sunday, Sharmila said despite Dr YSR’s demands to take steps to prevent
Karnataka from increasing the height of the dams, Naidu kept silent saying that
agricultural was waste.

YSR warned Naidu that
the latter would remain a betrayer of Telugu people in history if he didn’t
take any steps in this regard, Sharmila said, adding that it was ridiculous on
part of Naidu to come forward to stage dharna for Krishna water.

“Why didn’t you take
steps when our water was illegally being stolen by upstream states? Were you in
a deep slumber then?” she questioned the former CM.

Smt. Sharmila said the
farmers under the ayacut of Nagarjuna Sagar dam gave up agriculture during his
regime as he neglected agriculture considering it a wasteful activity.

Lashing out at Naidu’s
hypocritical stand on agriculture, Smt. Sharmila said the former chief minister
has been protecting the anti-people Congress Government as part of the
conspiracy against YSR Congress party chief Sri. Y. S. Jagan Mohan Reddy.
