The civil aviation ministry will examine the complaint about disruption of water supply at Tirupati international airport allegedly by the leaders of the YSR Congress Party in Andhra Pradesh and “will take necessary action,” civil aviation minister Jyotiraditya Scindia said on Thursday. It is said that Tirupati deputy mayor Abhinaya Reddy, son of Andhra Pradesh MLA B Karunakar Reddy, allegedly cut off the water supply to Tirupati airport and staff residential quarters. The minister’s announcement came after Bharatiya Janata Party’s MP GVL Narasimha Rao wrote to him, claiming that YSRCP leaders caused the disruption as a revenge, after some of their party members were denied entry into the airport earlier on January 10. In his letter, Rao also attached copies of local media reports about the incident. In a tweet Scindia wrote, "We will examine the issue at our end and take necessary action. Passengers and staff at the airport will not face any further inconvenience."

“On Monday i.e January 10, Tirupati Municipal Corporation suddenly stopped water supply to the Airport and the residential quarters hours after Airport entry was denied to some members of the ruling YSRCP party the previous day,” Rao said. Tirupati Municipal Corporation claim that the supply disruption was due to repairs,
