29 May, Vijayawada The State Chief Minister, N Chandrababu Naidu, has referred to Amaravati as “the people’s capital” (praja rajadhani, in Telugu) of Andhra Pradesh and lashed out at the doubters and critics, asserting that the new capital will be constructed on a massive scale and “it will not only connote the pride of Andhra people but will also act as the financial engine of economic growth of the State.”
On Tuesday, the final day of Mahanadu, the annual convention of the Telugu Desam Party, he was addressing here. He said that the first stage of Amaravati’s redevelopment will cost Rs 45,000 crore, and that proposals for projects worth Rs 24,000 crore had already been requested.
He went into great detail on the many aspects of the brand-new capital, the different educational institutions, hospitals, and hotels that will soon be built there, as well as the differences between the outside and inner ring roads. Not only involving development, but he also realised that people deserve to know the changes that we are making to AP for better future.
After the state’s bifurcation, he claimed, Andhra Pradesh was left without a capital and it was reasonable for him and the people of the state to wish for a world-class city to serve as the capital, adding that “the Union Government is honor-bound to aid the State in the construction. Instead, the BJP leaders and their friends are creating all sorts of hurdles. Sanctioning a meagre Rs 1,500 crore for the capital, Mr. Amit Shah is maxing all sorts of outrageous allegations.
In order to highlight what he termed “the double standards of the BJP leaders,” the Chief Minister also made a contrast to Dholera, a smart city project now under construction in Gujarat. An announcement regarding the Dholera smart city, which will be 80 kilometres from Ahmedabad and twice the size of New Delhi and six times larger than of Shanghai, was made in a video that was shown at the Mahanadu. Anytime you may know all these and more info with the help of TDP latest news.
“Friends, you have just seen the video of the honourable Prime Minister explaining confidently about Dholera smart city project forthcoming in Gujarat. They need Dholera in Gujarat, which is already a big capital city. Here we are without a capital and we are castigated for aiding and abetting pipe dreams on Amaravati. I need not say any of it. It is there for all to see,” the Chief Minister said in his closing remarks.
