Rajamahendravaram: Former MP Vundavalli Arun Kumar on Tuesday said that Chief Minister Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy was committing the same mistakes like his predecessor Chandrababu Naidu with regard to the Polavaram Project.
Speaking to reporters here on Tuesday, he said without constructing reservoir to store water what was the use of the project and the State has to face drinking water problem.
Pointing out that the Centre was only sanctioning Rs 7,500 cr for the construction of the multipurpose project, he wondered how the mega project could be completed with such a meagre allocation.
Referring to the Centre's statement that the relief and rehabilitation package also falls under the irrigation component, he demanded that the State government should secure a clarification from the BJP-led NDA government on the issue. There was a need to exert pressure on the Central government to secure release of funds for the implementation of R and R package, he said.
He further underlined the need to stop Telangana irrigation projects coming up in the upstream of Polavaram Project.
It is the duty of BJP government to implement Andhra Pradesh State Bifurcation Act-2014, but the government is doing injustice to Andhra Pradesh by not implemeting the Act, the former MP said.
