AP govt to raise Polavaram’s R&R package issue in PPA meeting on Nov 2
The AP government is getting ready to raise the Rehabilitation and Resettlement (R&R) package issue of the Polavaram Project in the meeting convened by the Polavaram Project Authority (PPA) on November 2 in Hyderabad. In an RTI query, the Central government has made it clear that it is in no way concerned with the R&R component of the Polavaram Project.
The Centre claimed that the previous TDP government had agreed to complete the construction of Polavaram with the 2014 cost estimates. Irrigation Minister Anil Kumar Yadav said that the Central government should bear the entire cost of Polavaram Project including R&R.
