Tamil Nadu CM Panneerselvam will be meeting Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu at Amaravati on Thursday, seeking release of drinking water from Telugu Ganga to Chennai. When Jayalalithaa was in hospital, the TN government wrote a letter to AP CM to release 4 tmcft water. Former Chief Minister NT Rama Rao had constructed Telugu Ganga in 1984 to divert water from Penna to Chennai on the request of MGR. The AP government might insist TN CM to clear Rs 450 crore dues. It is learnt that AP government may release 2,000 cusecs water per day up to 3 tmcft.
