After Water Resources Ministry Secretary Dr. Amarjit Singh wrote to Dinesh Kumar, Chief Secretary to Government of Andhra Pradesh, asking the Andhra Pradesh state government to call out fresh tenders nulling the current ones, the AP State Chief Minister Nara Chandrababu Naidu lashed out at Narendra Modi and BJP-led NDA government at the Centre.
Chandrababu held BJP led NDA government responsible for the slow release of the financial package, announced by Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley to Andhra Pradesh.
‘We joined the alliance with BJP in 2014 with a hope that it would do something good for the state and Polavaram Project in particular. The state suffered badly after the unscientific bifurcation process was carried out in the combined state of Andhra Pradesh,’ said the AP CM.
Chandrababu Naidu also stated that the only reason to agree for ‘Special Package’ despite facing several problems and backlash from the opposition party in the state is for the benefit of the Telugu people. ‘We maintained utmost composure and restraint despite facing several problems because we are part of the NDA alliance. But the Centre itself is causing many hurdles to the state,’ said Chandra Babu.
Polavaram Project is considered as the ‘lifeline’ of Andhra Pradesh in the future. The project is reported to cost Rs 54,000 crores.
