Chief Justice NV Ramana recuses himself from hearing the Andhra Pradesh-Telangana water dispute


New Delhi Aug 4(ILNS): The Chief Justice of India NV Ramana, today, recused himself from hearing the plea filed by the state of Andhra Pradesh, alleging that Telangana is depriving Andhra’s citizens of their legitimate share of water for drinking and irrigation purposes.

The divisional bench comprising of the Chief Justice NV Ramana and Justice Surya Kant was hearing a petition filed stating, “…the reservoir’s quantity has seriously depleted on account of the use of water for generation of power in Telangana state and established by ‘daily readings’ submitted by the Authorities of that Dam.”

Earlier, CJI had suggested the governments of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana seek instructions on clearing the disputes through mediation.

Whereas, Advocate G Umapathy appearing for the state of Andhra Pradesh submitted that the state wants to adjudicate the matter, to which Solicitor General had no objection.

The Andhra Pradesh government has alleged that “The state of Telangana is refusing to follow decisions taken in the Apex Council constituted under the Andhra Pradesh Reorganization Act, 2014, directions of Krishna River Management Board (KRMB) constituted under the 2014 Act and directions of the Government of India.”

The bench has now directed the matter to be listed before another bench./ILNS/GM/SV/SNG
