Telangana Congress president N Uttam Kumar Reddy wrote a letter in this regard to Karnataka chief minister Siddaramaiah, who also belongs to the Congress.

"The Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee resolved in its full executive committee meeting to request the Karnataka government to release the drinking water in appropriate quantity, to overcome the shortage in Telangana now," Reddy said in the letter to Siddaramaiah.

The TRS government in Telangana has already requested Karnataka to release 15 TMC of water from Almatti-Narayanpur reservoir, to meet the drinking water needs.

Telangana Irrigation Minister T Harish Rao had written a letter last week to his Karnataka counterpart MB Patil.

Reddy thanked the chief minister of Karnataka for releasing water last year following a similar request.
