President Pranab Mukherjee on Wednesday approved the much-controversial Polavaram Irrigation Ordinance which was earlier cleared by new Cabinet on Tuesday. The Polavaram Irrigation Ordinance insists the merging of seven mandals of Telangana into Seemandhra.

Meanwhile, Telangana Chief Minister-designate K Chandrasekhar Rao is vehemently protesting the move and even called for Telangana bandh on Thursday (today). He, however, puts a brave face and all set for legal battle via Supreme Court.

Ahead of bifurcation of Andhra Pradesh and carving out of Telangana on June 2, Cabinet had cleared the Ordinance. With this Ordinance, seven mandals of Khammam in Telangana will be merged into Seemandhra.
