The National Green Tribunal’s (NGT) rulings on the Palamuru Rangareddy Project, according to TPCC president A Revanth Reddy, will result in a significant loss for Southern Telangana. The foundation for the Palamuru Rangareddy Project was laid in 2015, and while the project has been on for six years, it is moving at a snail’s pace, he said in a press conference here on Friday.

“This reveals the State administration’s lack of commitment to the welfare and development of the erstwhile Palamuru,” Revanth Reddy said, adding that the State government should have hired an expert lawyer to represent Telangana in the case.

He claimed that the Andhra Pradesh government had completed the Pattiseema project, which needed environmental approvals, long before the tribunal’s decision.

He slammed BJP State President Bandi Sanjay and Union Tourism Minister G Kishan Reddy, saying they should take steps to acquire environmental clearances for the Palamuru Rangareddy project within 10 days.

“Congress will fight tooth and nail for the Palamuru Rangareddy Project and others built on the Krishna River because it is the only party that cares about farmers,” Revanth Reddy stated.
