A tense situation has developed due to friction between three states – Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh (AP) and Telangana – over Rajolibanda Diversion Scheme. The situation has arisen as Karnataka began desilting works, without informing AP. The desilting works will enable the water to flow at a lower level that is advantageous to Karnataka. Security forces have been posted at the site and farmers too have gathered there to see what happens.
