The water level in the Nagarjunsagar dam has reached dead storage. Ironically, today is the 48th year of the dam's inaugural. But instead of celebrating, the dam's engineers and workers are expressing grief. The Krishna River Water Board, at a meeting yesterday, ruled out irrigation water for kharif in both the Telugu states. The water will not be sufficient even for drinking purpose, they said. They urged the governments of AP and Telangana to inform the farmers.
