Karnataka Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa on Sunday said a project to bring Krishna water to Bangalore from Alamatti Dam was not under the state government's consideration.

He said that the statement regarding this project by Minister for Excise and Information Technology Katta Subramanya Naidu was not the opinion of government.

Naidu had said yesterday the Government was considering bringing Krishna river water to Bangalore city to augment drinking water supply.

Yeddyurappa said the BJP government was committed to complete all ongoing Krishna Basin irrigation projects "without considering 'A' or 'B' schemes".

The Chief Minister said government would not take any decision on Krishna water share till the final order by the Tribunal.
