 This is in response to a memorandum submitted by  a delegation from Andhra Pradesh comprising Ministers -- D. Sridhar Babu, P. Sudarshan Reddy and Jupally Krishna Rao, party legislators from Nizamabad, Karimangar, Adilabad and Warangal besides former Assembly Speaker K.R. Suresh Reddy. The delegation  who called on the Union  Minister for Water Resources Mr Pawan Kumar Bansal on Friday sought  Central intervention to direct the Maharashtra Government to stall further construction.

The delegation also explained  Bansal how the Maharashtra Government willfully dishonored the interim directions issued by the Supreme Court not to erect crest gates till the case was disposed of. Erection of crest gates at Babli would leave northern Telangana districts  dry  without water.
