Lok Satta seeks Central intervention in Babli dispute

The Lok Satta Party today suggested that the Union Government assume responsibility for resolution of inter-State river water disputes and water distribution among States through an appropriate Constitutional amendment.

 

Talking to media, Lok Satta Party leaders Katari Srinivasa Rao and Lenkala Raja Reddy said such intervention was necessary to ward off a threat to national unity and integrity.

 

They described the arrest of TDP leaders including former Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu by Maharashtra police under the pretext of preempting law and order problems was untenable. Preventing a fact-finding team from visiting Babli and other projects under construction in Maharashtra was unwarranted. As Indians, even Maharashtra people should know facts on these projects, said the party leaders.
