BRS demands removal of Adityanath Das from Post

Must read

Former Agriculture Minister Singireddy Niranjan Reddy has called for the immediate removal of Adityanath Das from his position as an advisor to the Telangana Irrigation Department. He criticised Das’s appointment, labelling it as detrimental to the interests of Telangana.
Niranjan Reddy alleged that the appointment signified the influence of former Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu over Telangana even before the new government was sworn in. He questioned whether Telangana Chief Minister Revanth Reddy would act in the state’s best interest or succumb to Naidu’s directives out of fear of losing his position.
Highlighting Das’s controversial role in the past, Niranjan Reddy pointed out that Das played a key role in halting the Palamuru-Rangareddy project during the Jalayagnam era through legal interventions. He questioned the rationale behind appointing someone who served in high-ranking positions in the Andhra Pradesh Irrigation Department as an advisor to Telangana’s irrigation sector.
He emphasised that Das has been known for his opposition to Telangana’s water projects and was instrumental in diverting water from the Krishna projects to Andhra Pradesh.
He expressed doubt over whether Das, who has been fighting for Andhra’s interests for the past decade, could now do justice to Telangana. The former minister also questioned the Congress party’s decision to appoint Das, suggesting that it could lead to significant setbacks for Telangana’s irrigation projects. He cited Das’s involvement in controversial projects such as Pothireddypadu, Dummugudem, and the Rayalaseema Lift Scheme, which have historically diverted water away from Telangana.
He argued that Telangana has many water experts with extensive experience and knowledge of its projects and resources. He expressed dismay over the decision to overlook these experts in favour of Das, who has a track record of working against Telangana.
In his concluding remarks, Niranjan Reddy warned that under the current Congress administration, regions like Palamuru might once again face severe water shortages and turn into arid zones. He urged the government to reconsider Das’s appointment and remove him from the advisory position to protect Telangana’s water interests.
