Amaravati: Former MP Undavalli Arun Kumar was arrested in Vijayawada who came to debate on corruption involved in Pattiseema project and Polavaram project on Tuesday. He was released later. He came to a public debate on the issue at Prakasam Barrage on Krishna River in Vijayawada on the demand of TDP MLA Gorantla Buchaiah Chowdary.
On the other hand, the police also did not allow Buchaiah Chowdary to reach the venue and restrained him.
Interestingly, both the leaders gathered their cadre to show their strength at the public meeting, instead of merely debating about the illegalities in the project.
Arun Kumar blamed that he would prove that there involved corruption in the construction of Pattiseema. He added that the government did not respond to his questions on this project from last two years. He said that he came to Vijayawada as Buchhaiah Chowdary responded.
On the other hand, Buchhaiah Chowdary stated that he demanded Arun Kumar to prove the corruption allegations involved in this project. He added that Arun Kumar could not see the Godavari River water in the Krishna River. He observed that Arun Kumar unnecessarily blaming government.
