Chandrababu Dreams Of Making Money, Not Polavaram

Hyderabad, Jan 6: YSR Congress has come down heavily on Chandrababu Naidu for his remarks on Polavaram describing it as his dream project and the false claim of owning up the project though he took it up for personal gains discarding state interests.

Speaking to reporters here on Friday, party senior leader Botsa Satyanarayana said:’ Chandrababu Naidu telling that Polavaram has been his dream project is ridiculous as it was he who tried to scuttle it while YSR had moved to all posts to get clearances and laid foundation stone in 2005. Blatantly telling that he has sacrificed special status for Polavaram is the height of insane thinking as Polavaram was included in the State Reorganisation Act with Centre taking responsibility for executing the work in full.

There was absolutely no need for him to take up Polavaram from the hands of Centre unless he has an ulterior motive of nepotism and kickbacks. Special status is beneficial to all the people of the state but taking the Polavaram project from the hands of Centre only benefits his own coterie and contractors.

Now claiming that Polavaram has been his dream project opens yawning gap between his words and deeds as the project was never talked about during his nine year term earlier and when YSR had taken up the project, it was Chandrababu Naidu who had met the Chief Ministers of neighbouring states with an open agenda of stalling the project.

His double standards are well exposed while YSR and YS Jagan Mohan Reddy had always stood in favour of the project from the beginning. Special status has been sacrificed by Chandrababu Naidu to take over the Polavaram project from the Centre only to allocate contracts to his favoured few and get kickbacks, he said.

The claims of Chandrababu Naidu apart, he had watered down special status which would bring in all-round development in the state and has taken up Polavaram, which was supposed to be completed by Centre as it is a national project, only for self interests. The special package has no relevance as there is nothing special in it he said adding that YSR Congress has always been in favour of Polavaram and the betterment of the State.
