Hyderabad, Nov 19 (UNI) Telugu Desam Party (TDP) President N Chandrababu Naidu today alleged that the ruling Congress Government in Andhra Pradesh had failed to stop the illegal construction on Babli and other projects on the river Godavari by the Maharashtra government.
Addressing a press conference here, he alleged that the Maharashtra government had not followed the directions of the Supreme Court and the State government had not brought pressure on the Centre to stop the illegal constructions on Babli.
Taking strong objection to Maharashtra government preventing a TDP delegation from visiting the project site, he said it was unfair to stop an opposition delegation from the state in a democratic set up.
Mr Naidu alleged that the Congress government was constructing irrigation projects where there was no water and it was merely to receive 'commissions'.
He said his party would take up an agitational programme on Babli project as soon as the TDP delegation returns and submits its report in the interest of the state particularly Telangana region.
On TRS's possible alliance with ruling Congress party, he said the TDP had made clear its stand on separate Telangana. There would not be any impact on his party even if TRS forged an alliance with the Congress which has not made clear its stand on Telangana so far, he added.
He claimed that the TDP would form the government in the state with a thumping majority in 2009 elections. However, his party would fight the elections in an alliance with Left parties.
