Center’s Adhoc Polavaram Help: Many Doubts!

S Venkateshwari
In order to fill the polavaram project with water up to a height of 41.15 metres, the central government committed to provide Rs 12,911.15 crores. According to the original project concept, Polavaram's advantages can only be fully reaped when the water is filled to a height of 45.72 metres. This assistance for the polavaram project's initial phase is being publicised by the state government and congress PARTY' target='_blank' title='ysr congress-Latest Updates, Photos, Videos are a click away, CLICK NOW">ysr congress media. However, the Finance division omits any reference of the fact that these monies are for the initial stage. In actuality, there is no indication of more assistance in the next stage.
There are questions regarding the YSRCP government's agreement to limit the project's height to 41.15 metres in order to fulfil the Central Government's responsibility to the National project. It is noteworthy that the central government did not provide the 5,127 Crore required for aid and reconstruction of the first phase's submerged communities. The central government should declare that these monies are only for the first phase and that help for the project would continue if people were to appreciate this ad hoc relief.
The central government always reimburses money used for the polavaram project. However, in this case, the state administration asserts that the Centre will pay this sum up front. It is OK if the Centre deposits this sum in the polavaram project's escrow account. However, if the federal government transfers the funds to a state government account, we are aware of what would happen to them, particularly given the impending elections.
