    State BJP leader Y Maheswar Reddy accused State IT Minister D Sridhar Babu of neglecting farmers by diverting eight tmcft of water from the Saraswati canal. This move has left farmers without enough water for their standing crops.

    Reddy criticized the government for failing to manage water distribution effectively, leading to many irrigation projects running out of water. He highlighted that crops in the final stages of harvesting are withering due to the lack of water. Minister Sridhar Babu’s actions have worsened the situation for farmers in north Telangana.
