The Chandrababu Naidu government has asked cement manufacturers to supply cement exclusively in red coloured bags. The firms readily accepted the decision, which was forwarded by the Chief Minister. In the meeting, the corporate executives negotiated with the state officials on the price of stock for government programmes. The CM asked the firms to be reasonable as the Polavaram project would alone need one million tonnes of cement. Later, the companies agreed to supply stock at Rs 250 per bag for the Polavaram project. Similarly, the companies agreed to supply stock at Rs 230 per bag for NTR Housing programme and Rs 230 per bag for road construction works.
