Odisha chief minister Naveen Patnaik writes to PM Narendra Modi requesting not to allow construction of Polavaram project until all pending issues are finally settled in SC
Deputy Chief Minister Telangana Sri Kadiyam Srihari called on Naveen. They discussed Polavaram issue which would impact both the states. Sri Srihari announced Telangana’s support to Odisha Government’s demand for stopping the project until all concerns are addressed.
Telangana is opposing the current design, would submerge 25 habitations in Motu tehsil in Malkangiri district and inundate around 7656 hectares of agriculture and forest land.
KCR was very proactive to consult Maharastra and sort out any differences they may have with Kaleshwaram project. Orissa and Chattisgarh will always raise the issue with the current design of Polavaram.
