Expressing anger against the authorities, Kavuri said he had not violated any rule. However, authorities say that any construction or even laying gravel on the bank was banned. They refused permission to the MP to lay gravel road on the bund.
Defying the authorities, Kavuri took a crowbar and shovel and tried to lay a road from Aatapaka under Kaikaluru mandal of Krishna district to Komati Lanka on the bund.
Speaking on the occasion, he said he would not tolerate attempts to stop road construction in the wild life forest. On Sunday night an effort was made to lay a road from the Aatapaka bird sanctuary. Kavuri’s argument is that the GO 20 issued in 1999 provided for repairing existing roads in the sanctuary. Stating that the forest officials have been obstructing laying of road for the past eight years, Kavuri questioned how long could people wait for the road. When he tried to lay gravel, forest officials obstructed him. There was a heated argument between him and the forest officials. He talked to the Chief Conservator of Forests and asked him to permit laying of road to mitigate the problems of the people. Though the official also objected, Kavuri went ahead and tried to lay the road.
