Stopping Works During Rainy Season Normal: Irrigation Minister Anil

Vastavam web: Irrigation Minister P Anil Kumar Yadav said that Polavaram Project construction works will be resumed in November 2019 and the YSRCP government is determined to complete the project by 2022. He rejected the allegations levelled by the TDP leaders, including former ministers, that the YSRCP had stalled the works and the government had no intention to complete the project.

He said it is a normal practice that any project works are stalled in the rainy season due to the impact of floods. He said the works would be restored in November after the receding of flood water.

Asked about the scrapping of contract with Navayuga company, he said the government will go for the reverse tendering and allocate the works as per the norms to complete the remaining works.

He said any company can participate in the reverse tending and the Government will choose the company which quotes least. He said saving of Rs.200 crore will benefit the people and it can be used for the use of public.
