With the Telugu daily ‘Eenadu’ continuously targeting the Polavaram project through ‘misleading’ write-ups, the Andhra Pradesh government has issued a government order granting permission for the Chief Public Prosecutor (CPP) to file a criminal defamation complaint against the news publication.

On May 12, the newspaper carried a news item to spread misinformation and mislead its readers about the Polavaram project quoted half-baked truths and presented distorted facts. The State government has strongly reacted to the news report which raised unnecessary questions about the government’s commitment to the project.

The Chief Public Prosecutor has been instructed to file a defamation case against the ‘Eenadu’ newspaper Managing Director and the concerned journalists. Meanwhile, Water Resources Minister Ambati Rambabu has said that YS Jagan government is committed to the completion of the Polavaram project soon.
