Capital : Naidu’s Feast for S’pore Companies


YSR Congress expressed concern over the way capital construction was slowly being pushed into the hands of private parties by chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu.

“Instead of converting the construction of capital Amaravati  a G2G affair between Andhra Pradesh and Singapore as suggested by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, chief minister Naidu is pushing this into the hands of private companies,” party senior leader Dharamana Prasada Rao said.

“It looks as though the deal is already struck with some private parties of Singapore” he remarked on Thursday while commenting on  yesterday’s cabinet decisions.

“Singapore Minister Eswaran had categorically stated that it was only the private parties and there will be no involvement of  Singapore government in the construction of capital,” Rao recalled alleging that cabinet had approved the Master Plan only after the deal was clinched much earlier with private companies of city state.

He reiterated party’s oft repeated comment that the capital area development was being looked at by TDP government as a business opportunity and that was happening on the ground now.

“The terms and conditions for the development have already been agreed and the yesterday’s cabinet nod is only a formality and to show off that the State is transparent,” he said.

He questioned the very wisdom in holding the cabinet meeting at Rajahmundry, where the Pushakaralu in full swing.

Rao also took objection to putting lid on the issue of TDP MLA Chintamaneni’s attack thasildar Vanajakshi by concluding that that the official was at fault in the incident and  expressed apprehension that the decision was likely to  influence the outcome of the investigation.

He said the government’s stand vis-à-vis TDP MLA Chintamaneni would only embolden the sand mafia to carry out their illegal activities with impunity.
