Babu Lays Foundation Stone for AP Capital


The Andhra Pradesh chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu has today laid foundation stone for Andhra Pradesh Capital formation in Amaravati.


Despite heavy criticism from the political parties over the recent alleged corruption row of Telangana TDP MLA Revanth Reddy, the party supreme doesn’t seem to defer any of his plans.


Speaking about the new capital of the residuary Andhra Pradesh, Chandrababu said that he would make the capital an outstanding one in the world that would be on par with Singapore.


It may be recalled that Mr Naidu along with TDP delegation earlier visited Singapore and reportedly observed the designs of some key buildings.


Babu even hailed the farmers who came forward and gave away their lands for the capital cause. He further said he would work for five days from Andhra Pradesh with an aim to build the elite capital city. Also, he urged the people of Andhra to extend their help for the same.

Taking pot shots at the Congress and the then UPA Government, the chief minister alleged that Congress went ahead with bifurcation of the state in a hush.

Meanwhile, Janasena Party, led by Pawan Kalyan came into the picture yet another time and demanded that the state be given special status with immediate effect. On the other hand, union minister Nirmala Seetharaman clarified that the Centre would extend all the required help in the formation of the capital city.


Briefing about the development of Hyderabad, Chandrababu Naidu said he brought recognition to the Nawabi city.


While the social media is apparently abuzz about Babu’s silence in Revanth Reddy’s episode, the chief minister remained tight lipped on the issue.


All in all, Mr Naidu seems to be giving top priority to capital city construction alone pushing aside some key issues and under development in the backward districts of Vizianagaram and Srikakulam.

It has to be mentioned here that it was due to Babu’s extra emphasis in the urban development brought Congress into limelight in 2004 in the residuary Andhra Pradesh. Whether Chandrababu Naidu is playing a safe dice this time or not remains to be a million dollar question.
