Hyderabad sources reported that Telangana Water Resources Development Corporation Chairman V Prakash Rao told reporters that the 'National Convention on Rejuvenation of the Krishna River', IWC's first event, will see participation of over 300 delegates of government organizations from various states and NGOs, including Rajendra Singh, known as 'Waterman of India'.



Earlier the Indian Water Council was formed last month in Rajasthan. Meanwhile Rao said the state government has started an initiative to rejuvenate the river by involving government organizations from Krishna river basin states of Maharashtra, Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka and Telangana and several NGOs. He said "There are plans to take up several works in the next 10 years to rejuvenate the river and the convention is the first step towards this".

Prakash said among focus areas for discussions would be arresting flow of pollutants into the river, creating awareness among farmers to avoid taking up paddy crop, besides issues of over extraction and encroachments. He added "There are plans for a forestation and to set up committees in villages to create awareness among people and farmers on ways to recharge ground water along Krishna and do all this by involving different organizations, including NGOs like Indian Water Council, Walk for Water, Jal Biradari".
