RS MP Vijay Sai urges Centre to release Rs 3,805 crore for Polavaram Project
YSRCP MP Vijay Sai Reddy on Tuesday requested the Central government in the Rajya Sabha for immediate release of Rs 3,805 crore towards the Polavaram Project. He brought to the notice of the House that the AP government is finding it difficult to spend further money on the construction of Polavaram in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic. Release of funds will ensure the completion of the Polavaram by the target date of December 2021, he stated. Responding to his question, Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman has assured the MP of looking into the matter by coordinating with the Water Resources Minister.
