Babu again in code controversy

One more time Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu was involved in code violation news when he visited Polavram site on Monday. CM Naidu monitored the project works when the model code of conduct was in place in the State. However, no IAS officer accompanied CM on his visit.

Babu reached to Polavaram by a special helicopter and went directly to the project site. He went into the gallery and observed the works. He also enquired about upper cofferdam works. From there, he reached lower coffer dam and observed several maps given by officials. Engineer in Chief Venkateswara Rao, CE Sridhar explained the CM Naidu about the project works. Before elections, CM Naidu made Monday (Somavaaram) as Polavaaram and reviewed it on a weekly basis.

After that CM spoke to media. He said that they can give water through gravity through this dam only by March 2020. He still blamed the central government for non-payment of Rs. 4,367 cr. He informed the gathering that Coffer dam works will be completed by June, and then they can store 23 tmc ft water in the project. 

CM said that the state government will take forward the project with the help of CWC agencies and central government and claimed that Polavaram stands in the first place of the projects that are being constructed fast. 

However, the participation of irrigation officials in CM Naidu's meeting raised controversy due to the presence of the model code of conduct. Water resources department Secretary, Sashibhushan Kumar did not attend the program. Even the collectors of East and West Godavari districts have not attended CM's visit. Even then, ENC Venkateswara Rao and CE Sridhar accompanied CM Naidu.
