Veteran Tollywood actor and president, Praja Rajyam Party, is starting his 11-day long Polavaram yatra from Wednesday. The yatra will start from Antarvedi in East Godavari district and will traverse through major districts of coastal Andhra culminating at Polavaram.
“The Polavaram project will be the lifeline of Andhra Pradesh. Much of the Godavari water is flowing into the sea. Exploiting its water would also benefit the second crop in the West Godavari and East Godavari districts. It will increase farm prosperity,” Chiranjeevi says. He hastens to add: “That Polavaram will negatively impact Telangana is all hogwash. How can it? It is a tail end project as far as the Telangana region is concerned.”
Chiranjeevi says that his yatra is also aimed at educating the people about the benefits of the project. This is essential because many farmers will lose their land for Polavaram.
The PRP is for a united state and not for bifurcation.
