Even as the due date for the Godavari Pushkarams is near, there is no water in Godavari river. There is only knee-deep water at the important pilgrim centre at Basara. The desperate State government has requested the Maharashtra government to release water. But it refused. It was later decided to release water from Sriramsagar, Yellampalli and Kadem projects. But the farmers protested against it.
