No 'hanky panky' in projects initiated with previous govt: Chandrababu Naidu

Lashing out at the Andhra Pradesh government for conducting inquiries into several projects (power purchase agreements, Polavaram project tenders, etc) initiated by the previous Telugu Desam Party (TD) government, former chief minister and TDP supremo N. Chandrababu Naidu on Friday said that the Centre has cleared the air on those matters and that there is no "hanky panky" in anything.
“Amaravati will not be flooded (as against environmental concerns), even the NGT (National Green Tribunal) has said it. A state needs a capital. Telangana has Hyderabad. If we didn't develop it, would it have been that way?," questioned Naidu while addressing a press conference at Guntur on Friday. Naidu once again, as in the past, remarked that Hyderabad was “his brainchild", and that he will always be proud of it.
“What is the speciality of Hyderabad? It has the outer ring road, an international airport, a metro rail, Cyberabad City (Hi-Tech city, IT sector) and it is going forward as a knowledge economy. Don't we need that here? Karnataka has Bangalore and they are happy," stated Naidu, and questioned the need to institute inquiries into all past projects initiated by his government.
The TDP supremo added that he decided to go for self-financing for Amaravati so that the capital can eventually generate wealth on its own after being set up. “It won't develop in one day. Farmers gave their lands for it and we promised them infrastructure in (within Amaravati). We gave concessions for institutions so that we can have best the best infrastructure there. We were building a modern city," Naidu said, adding that the present YSR Congress Party-led government, headed by chief minister Y. S. Jagan Mohan Reddy has “finished the city and the Polavaram project).
