Addressing a gathering of farmers at the Polavaram project site after launching the dam radial gates on Sunday, AP Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu accused his Telangana and Odisha counterparts, K Chandrasekhar Rao (KCR) and Naveen Patnaik of trying to block the construction of the multipurpose Polavaram project on the Godavari.
Naidu vowed to complete the project by December 2019 and maintained that Polavaram project caused no problems to either Telangana or Odisha. Naidu said, “No force can stop the work at Polavaram. During their meeting in Bhubaneswar, Naveen Patnaik and KCR discussed steps to stop the Polavaram project works. I don't understand why they are trying to block the project that is the lifeline of Andhra Pradesh.”
He added, “There is no problem at all for Telangana while Odisha would get to use five thousand million cubic feet of water. We also assured Odisha that people in the submergence areas of the Polavaram project in Odisha will be entirely rehabilitated.” He further added that he would hold talks with Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik to discuss about the project.
Naidu also attacked Prime Minister Narendra Modi for not showing any interest to visit Polavaram. Naidu said, “Modi visits every project in Gujarat but has shown no interest to visit Polavaram even once. On top of it, the Centre is also not releasing funds for the project.” He added, “There is no other project that is being built at such a brisk pace. Once completed, Polavaram will become wonder of India.”
