Secunderabad: Esteemed policy analyst Donthi Narsimha Reddy emphasized that water stands as the lifeblood for all living beings. Speaking at an awareness conference titled “Telangana Water Resources – Present Situation, Future Issues,” organized by the Telangana Development Forum (TDF) at the Sailing Club Annex near Tank Bund on World Water Day, Reddy stressed the imperative need to judiciously manage our water resources.

Under the chairmanship of TDF India Chairman Matta Rajeshwar Reddy, the conference shed light on the escalating challenges posed by the burgeoning city population, water supply issues, and technical constraints. Reddy highlighted the increasing water scarcity stemming from depleting water levels in Hyderabad’s projects, inadequate Sewage Treatment Plants (STPs), insufficient public awareness about sinkholes, wastage of rainwater, and the neglect of sewage treatment and reuse.

Expressing concern over governmental initiatives that prioritize aesthetic enhancements over water conservation, Reddy cautioned against the construction of concrete structures around reservoirs, uncontrolled urban expansion, and a lack of public education on responsible water usage. He urged governments to take stringent measures to address these pressing water challenges.

Following his address, Reddy engaged with attendees, responding to their queries and concerns. Both Reddy and the audience commended the community service initiatives undertaken by the Telangana Development Forum (TDF).

Rajeshwar Reddy echoed the sentiment, urging the annual celebration of World Water Day to raise awareness about the critical importance of water conservation.

The event was graced by the presence of Professor Ramesh Reddy, Marakanti Bhavani, MV Gonareddy, TDF India General Secretary Vinil, and TDF India Vice Presidents Pati Narender, Anupama, Anjana, DP Reddy, Randhir Baddam, Giridhar, P. Srinivas Reddy, Ramana Reddy, and Devulapalli.
