The release of water from Sagar Dam has become a topic of discussion. However, the Krishna River Management Board (KRMB) has directed the AP government to stop water withdrawal immediately.
KRMB has written a letter to AP Govt. The letter appealed to end the tension immediately. In the letter, KRMB clarified that they did not want AP cultivation water. KRMB said that 5.01 TMC water has already been released out of the 5 TMC ,the water requested for the month of October. It is interesting to see how the AP government will respond to this letter.
