The Lok Sabha today passed the AP reorganization Bill including the amendment of Polavaram which provided for transfer of 7 mandals of Khammam to Godavari districts providing for R & R operations in the submerged 136 to 200 villages by Government of AP.

Amidst protests by the TRS, Odisha and Chattisgarh opposition members that the consent of the state assembies was mandatory the Lok sabha passed the amendments to the reorganization act.

TRS MP Vinod argued that state boundaries were protected under article 3 and assembly opinion was a must. Congress MP Gutta Sukhender Reddy said that opinion of four states, tribals and experts should be taken before the amendment is pushed through in parliament.
