Hyderabad: YSR Congress Party senior leader Botsa Satyanarayana severely criticised the corruption in Polavaram project. Speaking to media here today, he said that the Polavaram project was being delayed due to the negligence of state government. He remarked that Polavaram was put aside for the sake of Pattiseema project.

Botsa demanded to know if either the Central or State government had any sincerity towards completing the projects. It is the responsibility of the state government to explain to people as why there was a change in DPR. "Only for commission amount did Andhra Pradesh chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu delay the project," he said.
