Chandrababu Naidu ‘ruined’ Polavaram, ‘not qualified to be MLA’: CM Jagan
Jagan declared that the previous government approved the unique monetary plan given by the Union government in 2016 without assuming, due to which the job expense was repaired based upon 2011 prices. “Now, the Centre has adopted a rigid stance saying it will not enhance the rates. And, it is also not reimbursing the Rs 2,900 crore the state government spent on Polavaram. This is only because of Chandrababu’s follies,” he stated. The Chief Minister offered a slide show in the House on the condition of the job operates in May 2019 as well as currently. “This is how Chandrababu destroyed the project and we are now forced to repair it. He left a barren land where the (approach) channel was supposed to be built. Huge gaps were left in the two coffer dams and the spillway was also left incomplete. Due to this, the velocity of (Godavari) water caused a breach in the diaphragm wall, which is the key to the main dam,” the Chief Minister explained. He stated the state government was currently attempting to reverse the damages as well as finish the Polavaram job on a battle ground.
Referring to the added payment he guaranteed to the Project Displaced Families, Jagan stated the cash would certainly be paid by the time resettlement of the family members approximately the shape degree of 41.15 metres was done. “I promised to enhance the compensation from Rs 6.86 lakh to Rs 10 lakh each. It will cost Rs 500 crore, which is nothing for me. I am pressing the button to distribute Rs 6,500 crore, Rs 6,700 crore and Rs 4,700 crore (for various welfare schemes)…this Rs 500 crore is nothing,” the Chief Minister stated. A government order on added payment was released on June 30, 2021, he stated.
