Rajahmundry Rural MLA Gorantla Buchaiah Chowdary alleged that the YSRCP and Congress leaders are making baseless allegations on irrigation projects. The MLA condemned the allegations of cracks in spillway constructed for Polavaram Project. Responding to MLA’s remarks, former MP Vundavalli Arun Kumar made it clear that he never said that cracks were found in spillway but only brought to the notice of the government based on information that he received from credible sources. Buchaiah stated that Krishna delta farmers received water from Pattiseema but Vundavalli said that water was lifted for only 14 days when the project was designed for 20 years. The former MP alleged that excess payments were made for Pattiseema as per CAG report.
