Bosta says Jagan is not ready to Hyderabad model in AP


AP Minister Botsa Satyanarayana said that chief minister Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy was not ready to repeat Hyderabad-model development in Andhra Pradesh. He said that Jagan Mohan Reddy and the YSR Congress government were planning to have more cities in the state developed on par with Hyderabad.

The Minister participated in a round table meeting organised by intellectuals and journalists at Kakinada on Saturday. The minister said that the successive governments from 1956 have developed only Hyderabad city and neglected other parts of the combined state.

North Coastal Andhra and Rayalaseema regions in Andhra Pradesh were totally neglected, the Minister said. He said all Central institutions and state offices were located only in Hyderabad and developed the only city, while other places started for funds and development.

The Minister said that the chief minister was planning to develop Amaravati, Visakhapatnam and Rayalaseema as Hyderabad in the first phase. There would be several Hyderabad’s in Andhra Pradesh under the YSR Congress regime, the minister asserted.

Botsa Satyanarayana also referred to the padayatra by the Amaravati farmers to develop only Amaravati. He said the farmers’ demand was unjust as the government has the responsibility to develop all regions with an equal approach.

The Minister also asserted that the government was committed to fulfil what all was agreed by the previous government with regard to the land pooling scheme. He said that the government has plans to implement every agreement that the previous government reached with the farmers.

The minister took a dig at the Amaravati farmers and its supporters and said that the issue had become more political. He found fault with the farmers for taking up the padayatra and visiting other areas against the wishes of the people.

“It doesn’t take even a minute to stop the padayatra which has become more political. There are people and areas which want decentralisation of development. The farmers of Amaravati are provoking the others,” the Minister said.

AP doesn’t need TDP any more, says Botsa


AP Minister Botsa Satyanarayana reiterated that the state does not require the TDP anymore. He claimed that majority people in the state have the same feeling and they would reject the TDP once again in the 2024 general elections.

The Minister said that the TDP had done nothing for the development of the backward region of Uttarandhra. He blamed the TDP Uttarandhra leaders for dancing to the tunes of Chandrababu Naidu and the Amaravati farmers.

The Minister referred to TDP AP president K Atchennaidu and its former president K Kala Venkata Rao, who hail from the Uttarandhra region. He questioned the two leaders for opposing Visakhapatnam as the administrative capital of the state.

The Minister discounted the allegation that the YSR Congress leaders were looting Visakhapatnam. “Does that mean the leaders of Uttarandhra are looters and those from Amaravati and its supporters are great? This is ridiculous,” he said.

He wanted the TDP leaders to understand the allegations made by the Amaravati and its supporters against the Uttarandhra leaders.

The Minister said that those who are opposing Uttarandhra development and Visakhapatnam as the administrative capital would be remembered as traitors of this region. He made an appeal to the TDP leaders to support the demand for Visakhapatnam as the administrative capital of the state.

Botsa said that Visakhapatnam would become the administrative capital of Andhra Pradesh and asserted that no force would stop it. He said that the YSR Congress is committed for the development of the three regions of the state to avoid separatist demands in future.

He said that a small investment in Visakhapatnam would make the city compete with Mumbai in no time.

No school is closed in AP, says Botsa


Minister for Education Botsa Satyanarayana claimed that the state government had not closed any school in the state. In the midst of a campaign in the media and protests by the students and parents in some parts of the state, the minister said that the schools are being integrated for better results and not closed.

There have been reports of the government closing the schools to maintain teacher-student ratio as per the New Education Policy 2020 issued by the Central government. The students are to be adjusted to the nearest school to maintain this ratio. Accordingly, the State government issued GO MS 117 on June 10, 2022 for rationalisation of student-teacher ratio.

The Minister said that the state government is considering various aspects including the proximity of the school and the accessibility to the school. If the students have to cross streams, rivulets and other water bodies to reach the school, the government would not shift the classes to maintain the student-teacher ratio, he added.

The Minister further said that the government had brought a new education system in accordance with the Central Government’s New Education Policy. According to this, the government had redesigned the schools into five categories, he said. While the existing system has three categories of Primary, Upper Primary and High Schools, the new system would have Satellite Foundation Schools, Foundation Schools, Foundation School Plus, Pre-High Schools, High Schools and High School Plus.

The junior colleges with intermediate courses are now integrated in the high school plus as 10+2 system, the minister added. Like the primary, upper primary and high schools, the new system would have these schools and that does not mean closing of any school, the Minister asserted.

However, the teachers, students and the parents in some parts of the state continue to hold protests against the proposal. While the parents and students are opposing the merger of classes in the new system, the teachers are opposing the move against the rationalisation as per the student-teacher ratio.

Not a single govt school closed: Botsa


Education Minister Botsa Satyanarayana refuted the allegations of the Opposition and a section of media on closure of 8000 government schools. He further clarified that not a single school was closed and stated that opposition leaders are misleading people with baseless allegations.

The Minister said that currently 42750 schools are functioning in the State, adding that only a few changes are being made right from anganwadis to all educational institutions, as the government is setting up foundation schools according to the new education policy.

He said that the government is striving to provide quality education along with better opportunities to the students and thus rolled out many reforms to increase the educational standard from Class-I. He stated that opposition leaders are behind the malicious propaganda against the government as they are unable to digest the revolutionary reforms.

The Minister demanded the opposition leaders prove where the schools were closed. He said out of 42750 schools, 5250 schools have been mapped and only 296 schools are located at a distance exceeding one kilometre and stated that changes will be made if any student faces inconvenience.

He said that the government is adamant on providing English medium education, as they can gain better opportunities and withstand the competitive world.

Further, he said that the State government is prioritizing the education sector by implementing schemes like Vidya Devena, Vidya Kanuka, Vasati Devena, Amma Vodi, while the previous government had never cared about students or their education.

He said that Chandrababu Naidu has no moral right to speak on Vidya Kanuka or Goru Muddha, as he couldn’t think of giving such kits at free of cost and even failed to provide proper food to the students in midday meals during his tenure.

Botsa skips review by CM, not happy with the portfolio!


Minister for Education Botsa Satyanarayana skipped the review meeting on his ministry by chief minister Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy at Tadepalli camp office on Wednesday. It was the second review meeting by the chief minister after the cabinet rejig. He reviewed the health and medical on Tuesday and education on Monday.

After the rejig, the chief minister had allocated the education ministry to Botsa Satyanarayana and municipal administration and urban development to Adimulapu Suresh. Interestingly, the chief minister swapped the portfolios between the two ministers.

It is said that Botsa Satyanarayana is not interested in holding the portfolio. He is being trolled on social media for the portfolio. While it is not known whether Botsa Satyanarayana took these trolling seriously or not interested in the portfolio. He was unavailable for the review meeting with the chief minister, the officials said.

The chief minister had enquired with the officials about the minister and had proceeded with the review meeting once the officials told him that the minister is unavailable. He had reportedly told the officials to brief the activities to the minister and speed up the programmes set for the year 2022-23.

Botsa Satyanarayana is currently touring his home district Vizianagaram after being sworn in on Monday. Sources say that Botsa had expected transport or Panchayat Raj or other portfolios and not education. In fact, he is not comfortable with the portfolio as he would have to interact with the professors and vice-chancellors in his capacity.

While those who were dropped from the cabinet have a reason to protest, Botsa Satyanarayana seems to have different reasons to protest and abstain from the review meeting. It is to be seen if he would succeed in getting his portfolio changed or get adjusted with it.

Committed to three capitals policy, says Andhra minister


Andhra Pradesh’s minister for municipal administration Botsa Satyanarayana said on Thursday that the state government remains committed to its decision to develop three state capitals.

He told reporters that three capital Bills will soon be tabled in the Assembly. His statement came hours after Andhra Pradesh High Court pronounced its orders on petitions filed by Amaravati farmers challenging trifurcation of the capital.

He said the government would react to the verdict after going through the judgment. He said the government will examine the details in the judgment and then decide whether to challenge it in the Supreme Court or not.

The minister said that the YSR Congress Party government’s policy is to develop three capitals to ensure decentralization and development of all regions.

The Andhra Pradesh High Court on Thursday directed the state government to complete implementation of Amaravati capital city master plan in six months.

The court also asked the government to hand over developed plots with all basic amenities to farmers within three months. The government was also asked not to alienate lands in Amaravati for any purpose other than development of state capital.

The court said that the Legislature has no legislative competence to pass any resolution/law for change of capital or bifurcating or trifurcating the capital city.

A three-judge bench headed by Chief Justice Prashant Kumar Mishra pronounced the judgment on 75 petitions filed by Amaravati farmers and others challenging the government’s move for trifurcation of state capital.

The court directed the government to keep it informed about the development works taken up as per capital city master plan.

“How can the plots be given in three months. We have to see whether this is practical or not,” the minister remarked.

Botsa Satyanarayana also argued that state legislature and Parliament have the right to make legislation. He also contended that the state legislature can also make laws with regard to the state capitals.

Minister Botsa’s family lands in land dispute!


Senior YSRCP leader and municipal administration minister Botsa Satyanarayana and his family members have landed in a land dispute in Vizianagaram. They are accused of encroaching plots belonging to poor and middle class families in Vizianagaram district headquarters.

Locals say they had purchased house sites on this land parcel more than four decades ago but Botsa’s family is projecting this land as agricultural land and trying to encroach it and get pattadar passbook by misusing their power.

Large number of affected families rushed to RDO office and lodged complaint against Botsa Adinarayana, the brother of Botsa Satyanarayana. They complained that Adinarayana has demolished their basements at house sites and also removed fencing and threatening them of dire consequences if they don’t leave the plots and handover the land.

Minister Botsa submitted an application to government stating that 0.92 acres in survey no.53/4 and 2.97 acres in survey no 53.5, belonged to him and sought the issuance of pattadar passbook in his name.

The revenue department issued a notification seeking objections if any from the people for issuing passbook to Botsa.

People questioned revenue officials how they can issue pattadar passbook to Botsa when the agriculture land was converted into plots four decades ago which they purchased with hard earned money.

Is Botsa getting ready for life beyond ministership?


Is senior YSRCP leader and minister Botsa Satyanarayana preparing for a life beyond ministry and position of powers? His recent interview to a YouTube channel gives ample indications that he is feeling insecure and unnerved. He has also talked about himself as a lion regardless of whether he is in the Congress or the YSRCP.

In the interview, Botsa said that his power does not diminish regardless of the party he is in. He said he would behave the same way in both the Congress and the YSRcP. He also slammed those who say that his power is now reduced. He dared them to prove that he is less powerful now.

He said that he is always popular and added that he would continue to serve the people regardless of the party he is in. He said people from across the state come to him seeking help. He has also pooh-poohed the reports that he is no longer the numero uno in North Andhra.

Of late, Botsa is said to be feeling insecure in view of the upcoming cabinet reshuffle. The buzz is that he would be sent to Rajya Sabha and thus his importance would be reduced. Botsa has been sending signals that he would want to continue in the state politics. He is also scoffed at the reports that he would be sent to the Rajya Sabha and would be asked to focus on national politics.

He is also trying to send signals that all is well in his family. There is a buzz in the social media that his nephew Chinna Srinu has rebelled against him. Similarly, there are also reports that some elements in the party are putting spokes in his attempts to project his son as his political heir. He said he is still the king of North Andhra and would continue to be one.

Botsa flares up Amaravathi issue again!


Andhra Pradesh municipal administration minister Botsa Satyanarayana has stirred up fresh controversy with his provoking comments on Amaravathi capital issue again.

Botsa on Saturday (today) ruled out any possibility of YSRCP government holding talks with Amaravathi farmers who are agitating for the cause of Amaravathi capital for over 600 days. He said there is nothing to discuss with Amaravathi farmers.

Botsa categorically stated that YSRCP government will not go back on shifting executive capital from Amaravathi to Visakhapatnam.

Botsa also made it clear that YSRCP government will set up three capitals for AP come what may as decided earlier.

He said Amaravathi will only remain as Legislative capital of AP and there is no change in this decision by the AP government.

Botsa reiterated his controversial comments on Amaravathi capital saying why AP’s future and development should be confined only to 20 villages in Amaravathi capital region.

Botsa’s remarks triggered sharp protests from farmers in Amaravathi capital region, who have given up their lands for the future of AP.

They burnt the effigies of Botsa and demanded him to take back his remarks on Amaravathi unconditionally.

Will Jagan use Bobbili scion to fight Botsa in Vizianagaram?


Is Botsa Satyanarayana proving to be a tough nut to crack for AP CM YS Jagan Mohan Reddy? Is he contemplating bringing back the Bobbili royal clan into the YSRCP to counter Botsa’s growing influence? Have YSRCP emissaries begun talking to the Bobbili royal scion Rao Venkata Sujaya Krishna Ranga Rao?

Highly placed sources say that YS Jagan is worried over the firm grip of Botsa on Vizianagaram politics. In the last two years, he made several attempts to reduce Botsa’s influence. He even planned to send Botsa to the Rajya Sabha. But, Botsa has complete control over the Vizianagaram politics. His family members are in key posts at various levels in the district. Botsa’s rivals reportedly took this issue to the notice of YS Jagan.

Since then, Jagan has been trying to loosen Botsa’s grip, but to no avail. Also, Botsa’s sudden tours to Delhi, which supporters say are personal, are also a source of concern for YS Jagan. Botsa has also largely managed to keep his tours a secret and the news about his tours is petering out only after they are over. What he is doing and who he is meeting while in Delhi is a hot topic of discussion.

Meanwhile, Sujayakrishna Ranga Rao is said to be unhappy in the TDP. With his traditional rival Ashok Gajapathi Raju gaining an upper hand in the district politics, he is planning to go back to the YSRCP, of which he was a member once. He joined the TDP and became a minister. In 2019, he fought as a TDP candidate from Bobbili and lost to the YSRCP. So, will Bobbili royal scion be an answer to the YSRCP’s Botsa woes?

Andhra Minister inaugurates project to solve Vijayawada’s water woes


Andhra Pradesh Municipal Administration Minister Botcha Satyanarayana on Saturday laid the foundation stone for a project to provide 24-hour drinking water to Vijayawada city.

Estimated to cost Rs 100 crore, the project aims to find a permanent solution to the city’s water problem.

Satyanarayana said the ruling YSRCP government aims to provide good amenities to the city and said Chief Minister Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy is taking special interest in the development of the city which is located along the Krishna river.

Satyanarayana added that Andhra Pradesh is implementing the highest number of welfare schemes in the country.

The foundation stone laying ceremony was also attended by Endowments Minister Vellampalli Srinivasa Rao and YSRCP MLA Malladi Vishnu.

What’s behind Botsa’s regular Delhi tours?


Delhi’s political circles are viewing AP’s key minister and key leader of North Andhra region Botsa Satyanarayana’s regular tours to New Delhi. Botsa has been visiting Delhi on a regular basis. But interestingly, he is said to be staying in star hotels and not in AP Bhavan. Nothing is being revealed about these visits to Delhi.

Interestingly, most of these meetings are being claimed as his personal visits and not official visits. Botsa has been a long standing politician with deep connections in New Delhi, especially in the Congress party and also the BJP. Sources say that he is not too happy with the dominance of Vijaysai Reddy and other leaders over the North Andhra politics. Unlike earlier, he has not been seen to be vocal on many issues these days.

All these are giving rise to questions about his ‘personal’ visits to Delhi. There are doubts about who he is meeting and what is transpiring at these meetings. He is not even bothering to meet the Telugu media in New Delhi, according to sources.

Meanwhile there are unconfirmed reports that YS Jagan is planning to send senior leaders like Peddireddy Ramachandra Reddy of Chittoor and Botsa Satyanarayana of Vizianagaram to Delhi. This in effect is nothing but reducing their influence on local politics. This is being seen as an attempt to cut at the roots of Botsa’s political base. Botsa is said to be unhappy at these developments. Analysts see some kind of link between these Delhi tours and the developments back in Andhra Pradesh.

Is Jagan planning to send Botsa, Peddireddy to Rajya Sabha?


Is AP chief minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy trying to implement Kamaraj Plan on some of his senior ministers? This is the hottest topic of discussion within the YSRCP circles these days. If sources are to be believed, he is trying to send some senior ministers and YSRCP functionaries to Rajya Sabha so that he can have a free run in the state.

Now what is Kamaraj Plan? When a young Indira Gandhi became the prime minister, she found it difficult to get along with the seniors in the Congress Party. So, a plan was hatched to make all the seniors resign from their posts in the government so that they do the party work. It appears that YS Jagan is now implementing the same plan in YSRCP.

According to highly placed sources, YS Jagan Mohan Reddy is finding handling few seniors very difficult. Despite his autocratic ways, some senior leaders are locally very powerful and are almost dictating terms in the districts. This is making things difficult for Jagan to promote young leaders from one district in north Andhra and one in Rayalaseema. This is proving frustrating for young leaders, who are getting increasingly restive.

For instance in Chittoor district, senior leader and minister Peddireddy Ramachandra Reddy is the one who calls the shots. He is stymieing the growth of young and trusted leaders like Rk Roja and Chevireddy Bhaskar Reddy. In fact, with Peddireddy himself being a minister, there is no possibility of another Reddy becoming a minister from Chittoor. Thus, the political careers of young leaders like Roja and Chevireddy have hit a permanent roadblock.

Ditto with Vizianagaram, where Botsa Satyanarayana calls the shots. It is becoming difficult to make decisions in the district without involving them. If sources are to be believed, there are plans to send both Botsa and Peddireddy to Rajya Sabha so that younger leaders could be promoted. But, will that be possible? Will that be a smooth transition.?

Botsa ultimate logic on ‘work from home’ demand


YCP’s most confusing minister Botsa Satyanarayana has given full clarity on one issue that is burning in Andhra Pradesh as of now. He has clearly clarified that ‘work from home’ is a concept that is meant for the IT industry. Only software professionals would be able to ‘work from home’ but not others. It is all the more difficult and impossible for the Government employees as they have to make themselves available in the field level.

Botsa’s clarification has come amidst the rising chorus from the employees’ associations from all over the State for giving them ‘work from home’ facility. Over 8 employees have died after getting infected with Covid at the State Secretariat in Amaravati Capital City. Several employees of the Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanams (TTD) have also succumbed. Hundreds of employees in different wings of the Government fell ill with the infections.

The Opposition leaders including Chandrababu Naidu have joined chorus demanding ‘work from home’ for the Government employees. Botsa asked Naidu not to confuse the employees with illogical arguments. The Minister told the IT-savvy former Chief Minister that what is possible in the IT industry would not be possible in the Government sector. The Government employees would have to be accessible to the people to provide various services.

Ministers give privilege notice against Ramesh Kumar


YCP Ministers Peddireddy Ramachandra Reddy and Botsa Satyanarayana have been making all sorts of allegations against SEC Ramesh Kumar ever since the panchayat polls began. In fact, they have started hurling personal abuses on him. One YCP leader even asked how Ramesh Kumar could become an IAS officer in the first place. In return, Ramesh also wrote a letter to the Governor seeking action against the Ministers and Advisors for their objectionable remarks.

Sharply reacting this, the YCP Ministers now took their battle to the next level. They gave a privilege notice to the Assembly Speaker saying that they were being insulted by the State Election Commissioner. They charged that the SEC was obstructing with their duties as the MLAs and Ministers. Consequently, there was total suspense as to what action Tammineni Sitaram would take against the SEC.
Analysts say that as usual, the Speaker would also join the YCP leaders in hurling abuses on the SEC just like how he did in respect of Chandrababu Naidu. But, the issue here is that Ramesh Kumar is also the head of a constitutional institution just like Tammineni. It is not constitutionally defendable on the part of the Speaker to unilaterally target the State Election Commission.

However, the political circles were waiting with a bated breath as to what would happen next. On his part, Ramesh Kumar is stepping up his attacks, telling the Chief Minister and his Ministers that it amounts to violation of the election code to pass needless remarks against the SEC.

17,000 townships to come up all over AP: Botsa


Municipal Administration Minister Botsa Satyanarayana has announced grand plans of their Government in the house sites distribution to the poor families. On Christmas day, the Chief Minister would formally launch distribution of over 30 lakh free house sites. At the same time, foundation stones will be laid for over 15 lakh houses.

Botsa Satyanarayan said that in all, their Government was bent on distributing over Rs. 23,538 Cr worth house sites. This has been a prestigious programme for the ruling YCP ahead of the local body elections. The Government is planning to go ahead with the elections whenever they are held. As of now, the High Court has left the decision to the State Election Commission but there is a chance that the YCP regime would again contest this in the Supreme Court.

As such, the local polls can be held only after SEC Ramesh Kumar retires in March. This is exactly what the YCP has been planning for.

Botsa Satyanarayana says that the housing programmes are also prestigious for them. Over 15 lakh houses would be built immediately. A house of 300 sft would be given to the beneficiaries at just Re. 1. Those poor families having their own sites would be given houses at Rs. 1.8 lakh. This massive housing programme would create nearly 17,000 townships in both rural and urban areas in the State in the coming months.

Chandrababu following BJP agenda, says Botsa


YCP’s crisis manager and Minister Botsa Satyanarayana has come up with his typical allegations against the TDP once again. He says that Chandrababu Naidu is following the BJP agenda. It is only because of this, the TDP is trying to obstruct the YSRCP Government’s efforts to make Visakhapatnam the Executive Capital of AP. In the name of attacks on temples, the TDP boss is trying to create hurdles for the Government but that will not stop capital shifting.

The Jagan Reddy regime has been facing lots of allegations for ‘not taking’ action against the culprits in the attacks on temples and also burning of sacred chariots. This has become an advantage for the YSRCP Ministers to convert this crisis into an opportunity. Instead of responding to the challenges of TDP on temple incidents, the Ministers were now saying that by raising the issues of temples, the TDP is simply following the BJP agenda in the State.

Only a few days ago, YCP MP Vijayasai Reddy praised the Modi Government to the skies in the Rajya Sabha. The YCP MPs gave their wholehearted support to the BJP’s two farmers Bills in the Parliament. This was also at a time when even friendly parties of BJP like Akali Dal were opposing the same.

Everybody knows that both YCP and TDP were following the BJP agenda at the national level. Neither party is in a moral standing to accuse the other of being hand in glove with the ‘communal’ BJP.

Is Botsa buying a fort belonging to Vizianagaram Rajas?


YCP crisis manager and Minister Botsa Satyanarayana has risen from humble beginnings to high peaks in a long political career. He is now in the unenviable position of defaming and demolishing Amaravati Capital at the behest of the Chief Minister. Botsa has passed damaging remarks against Amaravati now. Greatly provoked at this, TDP Politburo Member Varla Ramaiah demanded the Minister to explain to the people how he rose from a lower middle class background to become so rich that he was now trying to buy a fort of the Vizianagaram Maharaja’s family. Because of his corruption background, Botsa has no moral standing to criticise Chandrababu Naidu.

It is well known that Botsa was held responsible for Volkswagen not coming to Andhra Pradesh and his comment on loss of Rs. 11 Cr in the scandal was still considered a laughing stock in the state. The TDP argues that if Volkswagen came to the state, it would have created 50,000 jobs by now to the youth of AP. Unlike Mr. Naidu, the YSRCP leaders were committed only to amassing their personal wealth through mindless scams and corruption.

Varla Ramaiah scoffed at the Minister’s comment that Amaravati was developed for benefitting only one caste. Botsa seemed to have no educational qualifications also going by how he was making meaningless statements. If Capital lands belong to only one rich caste, then the Minister should prove it. In fact, of the total 29,881 farmers who sacrificed their lands for Capital city, there were 20,490 small and marginal farmers who contributed less than an acre. There were only 12 farmers who contributed between 20 and 25 acres. Another 142 farmers contributed 10 to 20 acres. Botsa should check these facts before making false allegations against the TDP.

Naidu politicising Vizag Capital, says Botsa


Confusion Minister Botsa Satyanarayana tried to remove latest confusion on the alleged hidden parts of the GN Rao and Boston committees reports which suggested against Vizag Capital. He told the media and the people that there’s a negative campaign by opposition on Vizag. Botsa blamed Chandrababu Naidu for the prevailing confusion on the government policies now. He asked Naidu to stop politicising the Vizag Capital since the government is moving ahead with clarity on the 3 Capitals decision.

Botsa asked the media not to mislead the public by publishing false reports. The government has taken the full reports of GN Rao, Boston and High Power Committee before selecting Vizag for Executive Capital. Naidu burnt these reports in Bhogi bonfires at that time. But now, the same Naidu is running campaign on these reports.

Botsa asked whether Naidu is for or against the decentralised development of all the regions in the state. On their part, the YCP is committed to development of backward regions on a par with developed areas. So, there is no turning back on Vizag Capital.

Mandali Fiasco – Botsa made scapegoat


Confusion Minister Botsa Satyanarayana made lots of noise during deadlock in the 3 Capitals Bill debate in Legislative Council. But ever since the Bill was referred to Select Committee, Botsa had fallen silent and not to be seen much. Rumours say that CM Jagan Reddy is not even calling the Minister for Amaravati Demolition to his latest strategy meetings also.

Prior to the Assembly session, Botsa was stated to have given confidence to Jagan Reddy on getting the Vizag Capital Bill positively passed in the Council. But the TDP MLCs gave no chance despite threatening and inducement tactics of Botsa. Then, the Minister promised to get the Bill rejected in the Council. This wasn’t why Botsa lost control and used foul language against Council Chairman Sharif. Even then, the Chairman stuck to his position and referred the Bill to the Selection Committee. The surprise strategies of Chandrababu Naidu gave nightmares to Botsa in Council episodes.

Now that the government suffered huge blow, Jagan Reddy has showed his displeasure against Botsa. The CM himself began taking direct control of the controversy by abolishing the Council altogether.
