Chandrasekhar Rao taking a decision on the barrage height at 148 meters and speaking to his Maharashtra counterpart Devendra Fadnavis on Sunday.
Maharashtra has already made its mind clear on allowing the height of the barrage at 148 meters during the talks between the two States and at other forums in which the representatives of two States had participated. Maharashtra had also responded positively in the past over utilisation of 160 TMC ft water by Telangana under the new project.
