Mumbai: The Maharashtra Government today
said TDP chief Chandrababu Naidu will not be allowed to visit
the Babhli barrage site in the state.

"The former Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister and his
delegation will not be allowed to visit the Babhli barrage
(site)," Chief Minister Ashok Chavan said after a high-level
meeting to review the situation ahead of the Nanded bandh
tomorrow.

The bandh has been called by the Babhli Kriti Sangarsh
Samiti.

Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister K Rosaiah had yesterday
appealed to Chavan to let the TDP team led by Naidu visit the
project site.

On whether the decision has been communicated to Rosaiah,
Chavan said "I have been speaking with him".

Naidu and 74 TDP leaders were arrested by Maharashtra
Police on July 16 when they sought to visit the controversial
Babhli irrigation project site constructed on river Godavari.

TDP alleges that the project being built "illegally" by
the Maharashtra government is detrimental to the interests
of the Telangana region.
