Vijaya vs Vijaya: It's `milk war'

Andhra Pradesh is selling unprocessed milk in Hyderabad as the newly-formed Telangana Dairy Development Federation (TDDF) is not giving AP access to the processing unit in Lalapet here.

The unit has been taken over by the Telangana authorities though the AP Dairy Development Corporation (APDDC) is yet to be bifurcated.

“We are unable to get our milk processed at Lalapet factory. As a result, we are forced to sell milk without processing it,“ AP advocate general Dammalapati Srinivas told the Hyderabad High Court. The ongoing tussle over the distribution of assets of APDDC, the producer of Vijaya brand milk, is threatening to blow up into a full-scale milk war between both states.
