Odisha seeks to stop Polavaram construction work
Updated : June 02, 2018 16:40:52 IST
In a letter to Union Environment and Forest Minister Harsh Vardhan, the chief minister said Odisha is not being informed on the issue of 'stop work order' being kept in abeyance from time to time by the ministry.
The construction work on the Polavaram irrigation project is in violation of the Godavari Water Dispute Tribunal Award, and it is being constructed without correctly assessing the backwater extent in the Sabari and Sileru limbs in the territory of Odisha.
