R&R package part of Polavaram Project: TDP MLA Gorantla
In a debate, TDP MLA Gorantla Butchaiah Chowdary on Tuesday said that the Polavaram is a mega national project according to the AP Reorganisation Act. The Central Water Commission (CWC) had cleared Rs 55,000 crore revised estimates submitted by the AP government in 2019. He asked as to why the Finance Ministry is excluding the cost of the Rehabilitation and Resettlement (R&R) package from the Polavaram Project. The TDP MLA stated that the BJP will have no future in AP if injustice is done to people. He defended the previous TDP government for taking up the construction of the Polavaram Project.
