Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu’s virtual inspection of the Polavaram project on an experimental basis made way to instruct the officials concerned not to compromise on the quality of the works.
Touching upon various subjects in a video-conference with the top brass of various departments, he said the Polavaram project was expedited and sounded confident of its completion as per the deadlines, and reiterated that he would take stringent action against those not discharging their duties properly.
Polavaram was and continues to be one of the most important agendas.
The first phase of the Polavaram irrigation project has been aimed to be completed by the year 2018. The pace at which the earthworks were going on at the project site give out confidence on the matter.
At present, earthworks are in progress. German company Baur, in association with Larsen & Toubro, is executing the construction of the diaphragm wall. Of the 11 crore cubic metres of earthworks, about 2.6 crore cubic metres work has already been completed.
