The Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu’s camp office at Undvalli, though temporary one, has started becoming a burden on the exchequer. The camp office which Naidu occupied is a private Guest House belonging to Lingamaneni Estate(p)Ltd. Now, AP government has prepared a plan to provide all facilities with about Rs 2.71 crore. In the past 16 months, this is Naidu’s third residence.
First he occupied Lake View Guest House in Hyderabad. The Guest House had been refurbished to suit the Vastu and other tastes of the chief minister. After some time, he switched over to his own house. Later he had to vacate it as it needed improvements and he occupied a private house. All these places, had been provided with all the necessary facilities required for the official residence of a chief minister. Later, Naidu vacated all these bungalows to switch over to Undavalli on the banks of River Krishna. Now, the R& B department is providing 31 facilities, as per the Vastu suggestion, to enhance the image of the place to the level of official residence of chief minister. The works include : providing emergency road for the CM camp office, providing Western side gate, providing security around the Camp Residence of CM, construction of boom barriers, providing permanent helipad, West and South side fencing for helipad set up at CM residence, providing approach road from Helipad to Entrance and the guest house etc. Very soon, the CM will have a modern CM’ s residence in Amaravati as well.
