Jagan to invite Modi for 3 capitals foundation stone laying ceremony on August 16


Chief Minsiter Y S Jaganmohan Reddy is gearing up for the foundation stone laying ceremony on August 16 for the formation of three capital cities – the executive capital at Visakhapatnam, the legislative capital at Amaravati and the judicial capital at Kurnool.

Jagan, it is learnt, is making all out efforts to get Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s appointment to invite him for the foundation stone laying ceremony on August 16.

Jagan wants to impress upon Modi to take part in the foundation stone laying ceremony either in person or via video-conference.

However, it is unlikely that Modi will participate as he had already laid the foundation stone on October 23, 2015
for the new capital in Amaravati when Chandrababu Naidu was the first chief minister of newly formed Andhra Pradesh.

At that time, Modi also promised support for the development of new state as promised in the AP Reorganisation Act, including special assistance. The
Prime Minister had also stated that the central government would fulfill all promises that had been made in the AP Reorganisation Act, 2014 and would be implemented in-toto.

If Modi attends the foundation laying ceremony, it will surely open up a can of worms and kick up a fresh political storm.
Questions will be raised on how the PM can lay the foundation stone for three capitals four years after he laid the foundation stone for the construction of Amaravati. Such a move will thoroughly expose the central government’s double standards on the capital issue.

Already, the Modi government exposed itself by claiming that the three capitals issue is a state subject and that the Centre has no role to play. The central government had filed an affidavit in the Andhra Pradesh High Court in this regard recently.

The Modi government’s affidavit exposed the BJP’s double standards on the capital issue as the saffron party had passed a political resolution in favour of Amaravati as the capital. The central government had sanctioned Rs 2,500 crore for the project and an amount of Rs 1,500 crore had already been released.

It is another matter that the BJP leaders are divided on the three capitals issue and have been talking in differnt tones.
When Kanna Lakshminarayana was state BJP president, he had written to Governor Biswabhusan Harichandan urging him not to give assent to the two capital bills.

The Governor had on July 31 given his assent to the two controversial bills — the Andhra Pradesh Decentralisation and Inclusive Development of all Regions Bill and APCRDA Repeal Bill paving the way for creating three capitals in Andhra Pradesh.

Rajya Sabha MP GVL Narasimha Rao and nrwly appoited state president Somu Veerraju stated capital creation was not in the purview of the Centre and that the two Bills were cleared as per the constitutional and legal provisions.

The Governor gave his assent to the two bills even as the matter is sub-judice. Further, the High Court had recently directed the AP government to maintain status quo till August 14 on the shifting of government offices from Amaravati. However, an impatient and defiant Jagan administration in a tearing hurry filed a Special Leave Petition in the Supreme Court seeking a stay on the High Court order.

The issue could be heard in the Supreme Court in the next two to three days. In the meanwhile, Jagan seems to be in a hurry to lay the foundation stone for the three capitals even as the matter is pending both in the High Court as well as the Supreme Court.

The Andhra Pradesh High Court had also sought complete details on the estimated cost of construction of the capital city in Amaravati and how much public money was spent so far.

The High Court expressed deep concern over the money that had so far been spent on construction of the capital in Amaravati. The High Court asked a volley of questions such as how many buildings were completed, how much money was spent and the outstanding amount to be paid to the contractors.

More than Rs 52,000 crore was spent on infrastructure, government buildings, water, power supply and other works as per CRDA records.

The case was posted for the next hearing on August 14.

  1. వస్తాడా సిగ్గులేకుండా. మాడా గాడు ! ఏమో వచ్చిన వస్తాడు. తోడు దొంగలు కదా !

  2. The author of the article is clearly a TDP patron. The rational is missed and his double standards are exposed. People like these kill journalism in daylight.
    52000 crores was spent it seems..where as only 5600 crores were spent in reality. May be the remaining amountnis shared between telugu 360 and Bolli babu..
    Shame in you for calling yourself editor. There are better ways to feed ur family than writing this biased news. SHAME ON YOU

    • The 52,000 crore is as per CRDA estimates. So idiot. Everyone who criticizes that faction and gooda chief Minsiter becomes Tdp patron. What you follow Sakshi. Idiot. Jagan is a dacoit. He spent 16 months in jail. Look at what courts are saying. 70 cases he lost. Shame on you bloody blue batch sucker

      • What is CRDA estimste? Is it spent?
        CBN himself told the spend was around 9k crores and you say CRDA estimates. Whom did they give it to?
        For example lets assume 52k crores spent is correct..cbn told its self financing project then why should 52k crores should be spent?
        Without even knowing the basics , you yellow jaundice guys comment.
        To ur c9mment that Jagan is dacoit. These cases are not new and are there much before election. Then why did people chose him?
        Because people thought CBN is more atrocious dangerous foolish perverted politician..and they are okay to vote to even Jagan but not to CBN.
        Or people have knownthat these cases are not legitimate and has been filed with political vendetta..
        Dont show your Munich intelligence here..
        This is not Beckman Coulter..
        You are the yellow batch A** licker..
        You should be ashamed and you a** holes should be thrown out of the state

        • this is not about jagan vs naidu. Idiots. This about what farmers and people want. This is about what courts are saying. That jagan is a brainless everyone knows by now. He, his bunch of cronies, his semi-literarate advisors, fully illiterate mlas and mps do not even know what they talk about. . Mlas like kodali Nani, anil kumar nandigam suresh do not even know what judiciary means. They are just goondas, who got elected with money and muscle power. In more than 70 cases, jagan and his goons had to face ignominy in courts be it english medium, the YSRCP colors on government buildings, ramesh kumar. The list is tiring long. And illiterate idiots comment that naidu is managing high court. Ok. Is naidu managing Supreme Court? I can understand if its illiterate mlas and mps, but jagan who studied in Hyderabad Public School also talks in a similar tone. this cm failed to get a single big ticket investment in last one year. Look at what national media is talking about. Times now navika kumar ripped apart one of jagans so called advisor. The policies of Reverse gear jagan have been discussed in The Print and several national newspapers. Jagan is a biggest joke. His 3 capitals in a small state like AP is hilarious 🤣. Even more hilarious is bjp saying it’s a state subject. All in all, these jokers made AP look like a joke.

      • First of all, you dintneven know my level of education. I am not sure how you comprehended it. This shows your inability to understand the things.
        Its mental disorder with cognodegenerative neuro syndromenand the symptom is exactly reflected in your comment.
        First visit a doctor or you may have to spend a life like CBN

    • oh journalism! This man☝️is saying watch sakshi, read sakshi. Sakshi, 24 hour jagan’s manasakshi. Hahaha haha. Sakshi is journalism, times now, the print and a host of national media is not. Pls read up what national media is saying. Don’t tell me that naidu is managing national media. Stupid fellow

I dont think you know somethingnl called MOOD OF THE NATION . Please google it. Egat i meant is something different . With this weak cognitive capabiIty , I really wonder how , Freight Tiger has hired with your narrow minded guy like you.

        • Mood of the nation. Jagan 3rd best performing cm. A survey jointly conducted by india today group and karvy insights. Hey, illiterate. Let me give you an insight. It is the same karvy group that is under sebi radar for rs 2500 crore scam. Now, now a fraud firm’s survey rating jagan as 3rd best performing cm should be taken seriously.
          Seriously!. Joker

          • Then 8n how many cases CBN is under radar. Sujana chowdhary is also in bank fraud..you yellow technological minister.
            Whatever Yellow jaundice batch does is in pure sanctity and others are corrupted. This itself reveals your underdeveloped brain which foolish and naive than a pre kg kid.
            Atleast illeterates are better as they IQ. Looks like brain is completely missing in your configuration.

          • Idiot, karvy is a fraud company. Siphoned off 2500 crore, not paying salaries to its staff. A worst performing company certifies jagan as one of the best performing cm. What was its yardstick. Just like naidu or jagan or godforsaken politician, karvy has business interests in andhra pradesh. Fool. Don’t you see it. Illiterate joker

      • Our eenadu Choudary and ABN kamma Jyothi r the best papers we have in country and national media ur talking , jst Hear wht national media and national leaders r telling about our great ZOOM Babu Naidu u will die in shame . He is cald the most dirties politician for a reason
