Member of Parliament Vinod Kumar explained about the severe drought conditions in Telangana state. Nearly 14 reservoirs on the Krishna and Godavari rivers have reached dead storage levels, he said. The state government has requested the Centre for Rs. 3,064 crore aid. But only Rs. 791 crore was announced, out of which only Rs. 400 has been released. The Centre has given a very meagre amount to solve drinking water problem, he said.
