CM must speak up on Polavaram Project: TDP Kalava
Former TDP minister Kalava Srinivasulu on Friday demanded Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy to make a public statement on Polavaram Project when the BJP-led NDA government had expressed inability to provide funds for the Rehabilitation and Resettlement (R&R) package.
Addressing the media, Kalava said that the Central Water Commission (CWC) gave clearance for Rs 47,725 crore for Polavaram. Now, the Centre is trying to limit project cost to Rs 20,398 crore by excluding the R&R package, he stated. Kalava faulted the Centre for cutting funds to Polavaram being a national project.
