Jagan To Chalk Out Action Plan On Polavaram!

Even as Telugu Desam Party president and Andhra Pradesh chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu is trying to sort out the isssues with the Centre on Polavaram project works through negotiations, YSR Congress party sees a big opportunity in the recent controversy over the fresh tenders to target the TDP.

Jagan has deputed a team of senior YSRC leaders and MLAs to visit Polavaram on Thursday to review the work in progress.

The team will also take a group of media persons to ascertain the facts. After assessing the situation, they would submit a report to Jagan who will chalk out the future course of action.

Needless to say, the YSRC team is predetermined to find the loopholes in the project construction, especially with regard to tendering process, which Naidu government is using as a milch cow for kickbacks.

“The State Reorganisation Act has clearly stated that the Polavaram is national project and all works will be taken up by the Centre which will execute and obtain necessary permissions for the completion but Chandrababu Naidu has wilfully sought to take over the project for the sake of kickbacks and when the issue did not work out, he has been expressing doubts after the Centre has raised some technical issues for which TDP government has no answers,” YSRC MP from Ongole Y V Subba Reddy said.

He pointed out that Naidu, who is in South Korea, spoke to Union minister Nitin Gadkari only about the financials of the project and not on the issue of progress of the project.

“It clearly shows that he is interested in kickbacks and not in completion of the project,” he said.

Naidu should first answer as to what was the reason for taking over the Polavaram project from the Centre and why backtrack now as the Central officials have clearly mentioned that the project has been transferred to State as per the request of the State government, he said.
