Rajahmundry ex MP Undavalli Arun Kumar has alleged that Pattiseema is one bogus project. The state has siphoned funds to the extent of Rs 490 crores he says.
Chandra Babu Naidu had announced that in 2018, he would bring in waters from the Polavaram Project. If that is just two years away, there is no point in spending Rs 1700 crores on another project.
Linking rivers does not mean pouring a little tumbler of water into Krishna river he said. Undavalli alleged that all this was being done to stall the Polavaram project.
While he has been taking crores of rupees as kickbacks, blaming the revenue department officials of corruption will not be bought by the people of Andhra Pradesh says Undavalli.
He demanded that Babu has to disclose the amount that he had taken from the project.
