Jagan should come clear on Capital issue, demands Ganta
By The Hindu 30-Aug-2019
“So far, Mr. Jagan Mohan Reddy has never given any indication on shifting the Capital, and hopefully he will not opt for it,” Mr. Srinivasa Rao said while addressing the media at the party office here on Thursday.
Quoting Mr. Jagan Mohan Reddy, the TDP leader said that as Leader of the Opposition, he had stated in the Assembly on September 4, 2014, that his party welcomed the setting up of the Capital in Vijayawada as it did not want people of one region to be pitted against another, and that wherever the Capital was set up it needed 30,000 acres.
A decision on the Capital had been taken going by the majority opinion expressed before the Sivaramakrishnan Committee. About ₹9,000 crore had been spent on it after farmers parted with 33,000 acres of land, he said.
Blaming Minister Botcha Satyanarayana for raking up a controversy, he said BJP Rajya Sabha member T.G. Venkatesh’s remarks that there would be four Capitals only confounded the confusion.
