Naidu’s subtle message to Ministers


Chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu has become first high-profile resident of Armaravati capital region today. After hectic programs and cabinet meeting at camp office in Vijayawada on Saturday, Naidu left for the House arranged for him in Lingamaneni Estates in Undavalli, Guntur district. This is for the first time he is going to stay at the official residence in the temporary capital. Today, his family members are said to have performed the house warming ritual. Keeping in view Naidu’s residence, tight security arrangement has been made at the Lingamaneni estates.

Many see this as a clear message to his cabinet ministers and senior officials who are hesitating to relocate themselves to Vijayawada or Guntur. But, as Naidu took the lead, there is no option for ministers but to fall in line. Many ministers are reluctant to shift to Vijayawada as they find few bungalows in the city suitable for a minister. Located 2 KM from from Prakasam barrage in Undavalli, the swanky guest house has four bedrooms, two big halls, a home theatre and additional rooms for CM’s staff and a mini conference hall.

The building meant for chief minister, located in the space of 1.5 ac. was finalized in June itself. After the family members satisfied with the building and comforts, a new two-lane road has been laid from the Prakasam barrage. An helipad is also constructed near the bungalow.
There is some criticism that the bungalow is raised in an encroached piece of land.
