chennai sources stated that tamilnadu chief minister E K Palaniswami heaped praises on andhra pradesh chief minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy. Meanwhile he thanked YS Jagan for responding positively and issued orders to release water to chennai from the telugu ganga Canal. When speaking on the last day of the tamilnadu assembly Session on thursday, the chief minister expressed his gratitude to the ap government.
Furthermore the people of chennai have faced a severe water crisis in 2019 as the water from the four main reservoirs of chennai have dried up completely. Further the other reason is that tamilnadu has experienced less rainfall than expected every year. Illegal encroachments and other developmental activities have made chennai and its suburbs experience severe water scarcity. Apparently the government of andhra pradesh has released around 4 TMCs of water under telugu ganga scheme and this water will be sufficient for the people of tamilnadu for the next five months. cm Palaniswami asserted that they have supplied metro water to the people as they have received krishna waters.
Moreover the tamilnadu assembly sessions started on january 6 and ended on january 9. Perhaps the tamilnadu chief minister further added that he had discussed with prime minister narendra modi about Godavari-Cauvery link project and as per report he added that they would discuss with the Chief Ministers of both the telugu States on Godavari-Cauvery link project.
