Minister Anil Kumar Yadav Welcomes High Court Decision On Polavaram Works - Sakshi Post

AMARAVATI: Andhra Pradesh Water Resources Minister Anil Kumar Yadav welcomed the High Court's (HC) decision and said that the HC decision on Polavaram project works has hampered the opposition party and now all obstacles to the project construction have been cleared. The works will resume once the Godavari floods have reduced

In a press statement released, Minister Anil Kumar Yadav also said that public money has been saved by the reverse tendering process.

The HC has quashed the stay imposed by a lower court on the government’s decision to go for reverse tendering by cancelling Polavaram Hydel project. Previously, the Navayuga group has filed a petition against the government’s decision and the lower court has ordered stay on the project. After an enquiry into the issue, the HC on Thursday quashed the stay and issued permission to make agreements with the new contractor. By this, the project has got a green signal to resume the works.

The High Court agreed with the Advocate General's argument that the writ petition has no value after the arbitration proceedings began and also agreed his argument that the Navayuga group has not approached the court with genuine intention. The High Court also upheld the lower court's injunction order of not encashing bank guarantees. The High Court also erred the lower court's ruling.
