The rebels questioned Bhusan’s silence over Polavaram dam project which they alleged will affect more than one lakh people across three States. The release said, “People know the facts.  Justifying Congress’ opposition to Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik’s recent Chitrakonda visit, the release claimed that an open letter to Naveen by the party shows to what extent the Government has been successful in solving issues like unemployment, health and education.

It further slammed Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s foreign trips on which Rs 355 crore has been spent. The four-page release urged the Prime Minister to stop flying while giving false assurances to people.
The rebels further stated that they never oppose work to improve communication network. “Rather the Maoists are fighting for the basic amenities of people like, land, drinking water, education and health”, it said, adding the Government has done nothing to accord Scheduled Tribe status to Kondareddy community residing in Poplur area.

Blaming the Government for submergence of 151 villages for construction of Balimela dam, the rebels questioned why has the Government not compensated those who lost their land to the project.
