  • SAVE WATER-SAVE STATES LINK GODAVARI AND CAUVERY RIVERS !

On an average more than four lakhs cusecs of water per day is being discharged to sea from the Godavari river through Dowaleswaram barrage near Rajamundry in Andra Pradesh for the last two months ( http://core.ap.gov.in/CMDashBoard/UserInterface/Irrigation/IrrigationCommonReport.aspx#tab2primary ) . Tamil Nadu state which is located a mere 700 kms from this location is in severe conflict with Karnataka over a meager 6000 cusecs of water per day, leading to destruction of hundreds of crores of assets through bandhs and violence apart from breeding unwanted hatred amongst citizens  and politicing the issue by Politicians. Water being a basic requirement for human survival  and establish a link between Godavari and Cauvery river basins as a Special National Project , within the next one year so that the water needs of entire South India are met for the next few decades , if not centuries . I also appeal to the Apex court of the nation to take suo-moto cognisance of this fact and issue necessary orders in public interest .
