Andhra To Keep Finances In Mind For Amaravati Works
By Ndtv 30-Aug-2019
Chief Minister Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy held a review meeting with top officials on capital city works. The first such meeting held by him since assuming office in May was held amid uncertainty on the capital's future created by statements of his ministers and leaders of ruling YSR Congress Party (YSRCP).
Urban Development Minister Botsa Satyanarayana had sparked a row with the comment that there is need for review of works as Amaravati is flood-prone. This triggered speculations that the government may shift the capital out of Amaravati.
"No one has doubts about the state capital," Botsa remarked after two-hour long meeting. To another query, he said the issue of Amaravati being flood-prone did not come up for discussion.
"How am I concerned with what others say," he shot back when asked about the contradictory statements being made about Amaravati.
Botsa said there were no agreements with banks and financial institutions for works worth Rs.35,000 crore launched by the previous Telugu Desam Party (TDP).
He revealed that 64,000 farmers gave their lands for the capital. While plots of 43,000 farmers were registered, the plots for remaining farmers were yet to be registered. He said annuity arrears for the farmers would be paid from Friday.
