AP Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu today laid foundation stone for coffer dam at Polavaram Project. It is intended to divert the Godavari water through spill way and approach channels. The diversion of water will enable the construction of ECRF dam. The dam’s storage capacity is 28.6 lakhs cusecs.
Speaking on the occasion, CM Chandrababu Naidu said “Rahul Gandhi, who came to the state recently made many allegations on my government without knowing the facts. Actually, the Centre handed over this project to us believing that an efficient and experienced Chief Minister like me alone can handle the project perfectly and ensure its timely completion. Opposition leader Jagan is also trying to create hurdles in our development works fearing they may ruin his political interests in the state. However, my government will go ahead with the works and complete the projects as I am accountable to the people of the state.”
