Supreme Court (SC) is hearing the petition by Odisha government that Polavaram Project works should be stopped, as they are going on without any plan in place. Odisha government had urged the Court to lift the Stay on Stop Works orders. Meanwhile, SC also reviewed a plea by Telangana government against Polavaram Project works that threaten many villagers to be displaced. However, the plea was dismissed as Centre said that there is no need to review the backwaters effects. The Apex Court however deferred Odisha's petition to November 15th.
