Jagan policy crippling Polavaram project: Naidu


TDP boss Chandrababu Naidu accused the Jagan Reddy government of going ahead blindly with its re-tendering on the complex Polavaram project based on the report of Jagan relative Raymond Peter. Latest reports say that YCP Regime is completing re-tendering process despite negative observations from the High Court as well as the Central Government. Naidu deplored that Jagan’s adamant policy will cause further delay in project completion and the cost of the project will also increase by several times.

Naidu alleged that the safety of Polavaram is also in danger as the company without any technical expertise is getting the works contract now. The re-tendering is purely designed to give the contract works only to the specific company as per the wishes of CM Jaganmohan Reddy. Polavaram will have to withstand 55 lakh cusecs water flow. Naidu said that if works are not done carefully, the safety of the dam and that of the people will be endangered. No other state in the country went for re-tendering on a huge irrigation project like Polavaram.
