Karimnagar: The activists of the Telangana Agricultural Workers’ Union staged dharna in front of the district Collectorate on Tuesday demanding the State government to declare the entire district as drought affected.

The TAWU workers gathered at the collectorate and raised slogans against the State government for announcing only 19 mandals as drought hit while the entire district was reeling under severe drought. They wanted the government to include all the 57 mandals in the drought-affected list.

They blamed the government for shifting water to Medak and Hyderabad from Karimnagar while the people of the Karimnagar district were facing severe drinking water scarcity. They made it clear that there was no question of shifting water to other districts without fulfilling the need of the people of the district.
