Telangana Congress sensed a conspiracy over AP Government taking full control of the Polavaram Project from Centre. T-Congress Leaders fear this could eventually lead to even more submergence of land in the Telangana territory.
Congress MLC P Sudhakar Reddy cautioned about the possible submergence of Bhadrachalam, Manuguru and Dummugudem. Pointing out the dislocation of the Tribals from their natural habitat, He demanded Centre to make sure Rehabilitation and Resettlement Act 2013 has been implemented without fail.
Polavaram Project was declared as National Project in the AP Reorganisation Act 2014. Centre need to bear 90% of the funds and State should take care of rest of the 10%. In the recently announced Special Package, Centre promised to fully fund the Polavaram Project which is the lifeline for several Seemandhra Districts.
