Specify Centre’s funding on Polavaram

Published on : 17-04-17 | 16:16

Hyderabad, April 17: Reiterating that the Chandrababau Naidu government has taken over the Polavaram project with an eye on kickbacks, YSR Congress has said that the state must categorically specify the amount agreed by the Centre for the national project.

Speaking to reporters here on Monday party spokesperson K Parthasarathi said: ‘the state has been time and again telling that the revised estimate of the project is Rs 40,000 crores while the amount does not match to the Centre’s estimates.

The Centre has very specifically said that it would pay only as per the 2013 estimate which accounts for Rs 16,0000 crores and deduct the amount spent so far from it.

 The State on the other hand has been telling that the project cost is Rs 40,000 and it is high time that Chandrababu Naidu come out with the facts and figures as to how much the Centre would be paying instead of resorting to criticism of Leader of Opposition time and again,’ he said.

The State after taking over the project has retained the blacklisted company with questionable credentials and has been negotiating directly with sub-contractors as well with an eye on kickbacks, he said.

 The irrigation minister makes tall claims but he could not provide water to the Krishna delta even and he along with Chief Minister was known to take steps to stall the Polavaram project by mounting pressure on the neighbouring states and local farmers when YSR was the Chief Minister, he said.

Though a dalit woman minister was ranked as topper in the cabinet she was shunted out and the irrigation minister was not shifted as he was well versed with the settlements with contractors and the dealings in irrigation projects, he said.

‘YS Jagan Mohan Reddy has always been with the people and advocated for people’s cause unlike the Chief Minister and his cabinet colleagues who are more interested in kickbacks.

The state should also make it clear as to how much funding the Centre is giving for Polavaram project as per the revised estimates and whether or not it matches our expectations, he said.
