The two Telugu states are at war over Muchumarri lift irrigation project, coming up near Kurnool. The Andhra Pradesh (AP) government is set to complete the project, to irrigate lakhs of acres in Rayalaseema area, on the plea that it would become a desert otherwise. But Telangana is totally opposed to the project as it will take water from Srisailam project, leaving nothing for the southern region. AP is however pressurised by Rayalaseema farmers.
