Chiranjeevi for Delcaring Polavarm as a National Project

Outlook, Vijayawada, May 16, 2010

Praja Rajyam Party president Chiranjeevi today demanded that Centre should declare Polavarm irrigation project as a national project.

Chiranjeevi has been touring coastal districts of Andhra Pradesh for last five days to seek support from the people on his mission to declare Polavaaram as national project.

He entered Krishna district late last night after finishing East and West Godavari districts.

Today also he held road shows where the Polvaram irrigation projects canal work is under progress. On his way, he has been addressing many public meetings from his own decorated vehicle.

He said though the Andhra Pradesh government has taken Polavaram irrigation project in 2005 under its prestigious Jalayagnam, nothing much has been achieved since then. He said though the government spent only Rs 3,000 crore and the project needs another Rs 12,000 cr, the present state government is unable to provide sufficient funds to complete the projects.

He said the union government should declare the project as a national project to allocate funds from central budget.

Chiranjeevi also lashed out the government that it has no commitment to complete the project which will supply irrigation water to the extent of 13 lakh acres in the dry lands of Coastal districts.

The Polavaram project, to be built to a height of 150 ft, is intended to irrigate acres in the uplands of the two Godavari districts, Visakhapatnam and Krishna. The storage capacity of the reservoir 75 tmc ft. The project will also generate 960 MW power. The cost of the project is said to be well in excess of Rs 12,000 crore
