Telangana govt moves SC against Rayalaseema Lift Irrigation Project
The Telangana government filed a Special Leave Petition (SLP) in the Supreme Court requesting to give stay on the tender process for the Rayalaseema Lift Irrigation Project works. The state government asked the Apex Court to protect the justifiable demands of Telangana people. Earlier, the Krishna River Management Board (KRMB) had directed the AP government to stop the tender process of the Rayalaseema Project after the Telangana government had raised the objection citing the violation of the AP Reorganisation Act. The KRMB informed the AP government not to go ahead with the project works without the Apex Council nod.
