Andhra Pradesh (AP) Congress party leaders charged AP government of deliberately increasing the estimates of Polavaram Project, to earn commissioners. YSRCP leader Parthasaradhi demanded the government to give a clarity over the issue. He said that Centre has given funds for Polavaram Project based on earlier estimates. Fresh estimates are being made amounting to roughly around Rs. 44 lakh crore. Who will bear the extra expenditure, he questioned. Meanwhile, AP Irrigation minister Devineni Uma clarified that the Centre has made it very clear that it would bear 100 per cent costs of Polavaram Project, by itself.
