While neither Presidents Office, nor Prime Ministers Office is transparent and forthcoming with facts after the first Cabinet meeting of India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi
It is widely reported in the Presss “Cabinet clears ordinance on controversial Polavaram project”
Why this ordinance is not about Polavaram Project
1. The Polavaram Project has been named as National Project in THE ANDHRA PRADESH REORGANISATION ACT, 2014
2. All the Areas notified by Govt of AP for Evacuation due to submersion of this Mega Project and 3 more villages are already transferred or retained in the residuary state of Andhra Pradesh
Part II article 3
“Khammam (but excluding the revenue villages in the Mandals specified
in G.O.Ms. No. 111 Irrigation & CAD (LA IV R&R-I) Department, dated the 27th June,
2005 and the revenue villages of Bhurgampadu, Seetharamanagaram and Kondreka in
Bhurgampadu Mandal) ”
This in itself covers all the area + more as per current design submitted by the state to CWC.
So what exactly the Narendra modi government is attempting?
1. It is attempting taking all seven mandals remaining (ie not submerged and not affected by Polavaram Project by a Stroke to Andhra Pradesh against the wishes of these 2 Lakh additional people to almost 2 Lakh people already affected most of them are Adivasis.
2. At a stroke it is transferring 450 MW Silery Hydal Project that comes under Telangana currently to Andhra Pradesh adding to the 2000 MW Deficit in Power Generation Capacity that Telangana already suffers.
Any one with basic Respect to Democracy and Constitution must condemn this attempt that is nothing short of fraud to circumvent Article 3 of Constitution before the Telangana Establishment Day.
It is a Day light Murder of Indian Democracy and I still hope this does not happen and President and Prime Minister take this Ordinance Back and welcome the arrival of 29th State of India Telangana that has been subject to Tyranny of Majority for 58 years and is subjected to innumerable betrayals and continues to see it even with new Prime Minister very very unfortunately..
Please STOP this FRAUD let the people affected get their democratic choice, Telangana is not opposing Polavaram Project and Development of Seemandhra it is only opposing do not resort to disgraceful acts to deny the Adivasis their fundamental right to choose their place of living and which state they wish to be with..
What would be the fate of these Aborigin Adivasis of this beautiful land where Lord Rama did his Vanavasam in the hands of the people who resorted to this level of fraud and backstabbing is not hard to imagine, appeal to people of India to stand by the Adivasis of India to who we owed in our constitution to protect them and their lands on priority.
