AP’s Krishna water dispute petition transferred to another SC bench
The petition filed by the Andhra Pradesh government over Krishna water dispute was transferred from the bench headed by Chief Justice of India to another bench. It informed the Supreme Court that row between two Telugu states regarding sharing of Krishna water is needed to be resolved through legal intervention only.
On Monday, CJI NV Ramana has suggested to advocates of both states to resolve the water dispute through mediation. However, the Central government urged the CJI to hear the petition instead of allotting to another bench. But he did not consider Centre’s request.
