Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu came down heavily on opposition leader Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy for accusing him of stealing water. Pointing out at the report run by Sakshi Newspaper about diverting huge quantity of water from Pothireddypadu, Naidu asked, “How can giving water be termed as stealing?”
It may be noted that Jagan owned media house Sakshi, ran a report on drawing water from Pothireddypadu in two different styles based on the region on Thursday. While in Telangana edition they critiqued Naidu for stealing water, in AP edition, they just said the water diversion has been halted.
AP CM deplored that Sakshi in its Telangana edition are writing only with the intention to provoke people of the neighbouring state. TDP supremo asked, “Why are you obstructing us from providing water to Pulivendula and Kadapa?” He said that the Krishna waters are being used in equal proportion in Telangana and Andhra Pradesh. He critiqued the opposition for stalling everything and that too in a very ghastly manner.
