CM urges PM Modi to stop construction of Polavaram project

Bhubaneswar: Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik today wrote to Prime Minister Narendra Modi requesting to cancel the order given by Ministry of Forest and Environment for Polavaram project in Andhra Pradesh.

The Chief Minister urged the PM to give directions to cancel the order given by the Ministry of Forest and Environment for Polavaram project on July 10 and to stop the construction of the project until all pending issues are resolved.

“I am constrained to write this letter to draw your attention and intervention on the magnitude of the consequences that the people of Odisha will have to face viz. The submergence of tribal villages resulting in mass displacement of tribals, the flooding of fertile agricultural land and submergence of large forest area, all of which can be avoided if only an opportunity is given for a final resolution of the dispute pending before the Supreme Court,” said Patnaik.
