Union Minister says no to three capitals in AP


Union Minister of state for external affairs, V Muraleedharana, on Saturday said that the Central government would not support the three capitals plan of Andhra Pradesh government. He said that there was no need for a state to have three capitals.

The Union Minister said that the ruling YSR Congress were eyeing Visakhapatnam only to loot the city. He said that the BJP had been exposing the corruption of the ruling YSR Congress leaders in Visakhapatnam and the Central leadership too is of the same view.

He took a dig at the YSR Congress for creating political dramas in the name of administrative capital at Visakhapatnam. He claimed that people of the region have not supported the demand except the YSR Congress leaders.

Muraleedharan said that the Central government is not ready to endorse the three capitals plans of the YSR Congress. He claimed that there was no additional value for three capitals in any state.

The Central minister said that the YSR Congress leaders found good market value for the lands in Visakhapatnam which is why they were running around the city. He claimed that the Central government had developed Visakhapatnam over the years and there was nothing for the YSR Congress to do now.

However, Muraleedharan maintained that the BJP as a political party and the Central government were not supporting the three capitals. He also claimed that AP BJP had extended support to Amaravati as the only capital for the state and maintained that the Central leadership of the party would also support the State’s agenda.

Cover-up Acts of Jai Lava Kusa and DJ Directors

We have already reported that renowned cinematographer Muraleedharan of ‘PK’ and ‘3 Idiots’ fame has walked out of NTR’s ‘Jai Lava Kusa’ while about fifty percent of the film is yet to be canned. Although the film’s director Bobby and producer Kalyanram Nandamuri have claimed that his replacement was a pre-agreement, the reason doesn’t look convincing.

What was the need of roping in a cinematographer knowing beforehand that he wouldn’t be available until the completion of film? Some time ago, we have informed that NTR was giving priority to Muraleedharan when he and Bobby weren’t on same page regarding certain scenes. Speculations were rife ever since the shoot commenced saying that Bobby and Muraleedharan had creative differences.

Finally, after completing about half of the film, the PK cinematographer decided to walk out. He was replaced by noted Telugu cameraman Chota K Naidu. Well, this is not the first time Bobby enforced the replacement of cinematographer. For Bobby’s debut film ‘Power’, a Ravi Teja starrer, noted cameraman Arthur A Wilson was replaced by Jayanan Vincent as Bobby had allegedly developed differences with Wilson.

On the other hand, DJ director Harish Shankar’s tweet, a couple of hours after unveiling the film’s audio teaser on Monday became a talking point in film circles. He thanked film’s cinematographer, Ayananka Bose in his tweet.

“Sir ji….. @DoP_Bose thx for the follow up for the teaser I appreciate ur efforts even though ur busy in London …. missing u,” tweeted Harish Shankar.

It may be noted that Bose has recently left DJ unit to join the team of Bollywood film ‘Judwaa 2’ starring Varun Dhawan, Jacqueline Fernandez and Taapsee Pannu. As the shoot of DJ got delayed, Bose expressed his unwillingness in completing the film’s remaining portion since he had already committed for Judwaa 2. He is currently in London canning the Varun starrer.
