The Polavaram project works in Andhra Pradesh are likely to be speeded up soon with the intervention of the Center. It is said that officials from Central Water Commission, Polavaram Project Authority and Union ministry of water resources have come to an understanding of the issue. Center is likely to make arrangements for Cement and Steel required for the project and other infrastructures needed for the completion of the project. Previously, the state government was bearing the expenses meant for purchasing of Cement and Steel. Union Water Minister Nitin Gadakari, who recently visited the Polavaram project site, has positively responded to CM Chandrababu Naidu's appeal on expenses issue.The Center has now decided to lower the financial burden on the state government in this regard.
