BRS Protest in Nalgonda: In a bold move following their loss of power, the Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRS) KCR organizes a public gathering in Nalgonda to protest against the alleged transfer of Krishna river projects to the Krishna River Management Board (KRMB) by the Congress government.
Former Chief Minister and BRS president K. Chandrasekhar Rao will address the gathering, which aims to safeguard the state’s interests in Krishna and Godavari river waters. This marks BRS’s first public event since losing power to the Congress two and a half months ago. Led by BRS working president K. T. Rama Rao, party leaders, including MPs, MLAs, and MLCs, travel to Nalgonda from the BRS headquarters in special buses.
The opposition party accuses the Congress government of jeopardizing state interests by agreeing to hand over management of Srisailam and Nagarjuna Sagar dams to KRMB. BRS supporters from districts within the Krishna basin, including Mahabubnagar, Rangareddy, Khammam, and Nalgonda, gather for the protest.

Meanwhile, the Congress stages a unique protest in Nalgonda, placing KCR’s photo on a chair with a pink towel, highlighting his promises regarding irrigation projects. Protesters accuse KCR of failing to fulfill commitments and protect the state’s interests.
The Telangana Assembly passes a resolution stating that the state will not relinquish control of shared projects to KRMB unless specific conditions are met. Additionally, the Assembly urges the Indian government to withdraw the CRPF and hand over project control to the Telangana government.
The resolution garners unanimous support following a presentation by Irrigation Minister N. Uttam Kumar Reddy and a heated debate, with both Congress and BRS trading accusations of harming the state’s interests. While the ruling party blames BRS for agreeing to centralize Krishna projects and permitting Andhra Pradesh’s illegal projects, BRS considers the resolution a triumph, attributing it to their planned BRS Protest in Nalgonda.
