Andhra Pradesh Finance Minister Yanamala Ramakrishnudu vented anger on Opposition YSR Congress party. He alleged that the opposition party has been writing iniquitous emails to World Bank. Consequently, creating obstacles in procuring loans for the construction of capital city Amaravati.

He noted that previously YSRCP reached out to the Green Tribunal and filed a petition in the court questioning the construction of the capital. Yanamala purported that the opposition party has lodged a complaint with the World Bank to deprive the government from getting finances. The Minister recalled that YSCRP have written emails to the foreign ministers asking them to avoid attending the Amaravati inauguration.

On the other hand, CRDA Land Acquisition meeting in Penumaka, Tadepalli mandal witnessed chaotic scenes. The officials refused to record the objections raised by the farmers. Mangalagiri MLA Alla Ramakirshna Reddy expressing anger pushed a table. Subsequently the farmers broke the chairs and scorned from the conference.

The struggles of CRDA seem continue with the opposition party creating obstacles in the ruling party’s path.

Yanamala provokes sharp retort from Pawan


‘Power-star’ Pawan Kalyan announced that he was descending down from twitter to the farm lands of Betapudi, Penumaka and Undavalli. He tweeted he was going to meet the farmers of these villages and other villages in the catchment area of River Krishan.

The actor, however, expressed dismay at the sarcastic remarks of finance minister Yanamala Ramakrishnudu and said the minister heckled his efforts to carry forward the cause of the farmers instead of responding with wisdom.

Pressed to the wall, Pawan has given a fitting retort to finance minister, who tried to defend government acquisition of fertile and multi-crop lands for the purpose capital construction.

While Pawan is for sparing these lands from being acquired as they are uniquely fertile, finance minister argues, if you want development you need to bear the loss. By comparing the development of Film city in Hyderabad with development of Capital city in Guntur district, Finance minister, pushed the wrong button in his enthusiasm by stating that government collected lands from farmers and assigned them to film industry in Jubillee Hills.

Pawan cried foul. He said the lands given to the film industry were no way comparable to the lands of Betapudi, Vundavalli and Penumaka, where three crops were raised.

“Finance minister may not be knowing that the lands assigned to the cinema industry in Hyderabad were hillocks and not the fertile farm lands,” he tweeted.

He said, ” If we know in advance that what is being built is heaven, we can tell if it is a heaven or a suspended misery between earth and sky.”

He clarified he had no studios on the hills of either Hyderabad or Vizag.

Vizag to host Assembly session ?


Since setting up a temporary capital in new capital region is meeting with stiff opposition from the employees, Andhra Pradesh government is planning to hold the Assembly session in Visakhapatna to take the administration notionally closer to Andhra Pradesh.

Now, the administration is functioning nearly 250 km away from the proper state of Andhra Pradesh.

To satisfy the people of state emotionally, Andhra Pradesh has been taking some symbolic steps like celebrating national festivals in districts and conducting cabinet meetings outside Hyderabad.

Now, the government is mulling over holding forthcoming Assembly session in Visakhapatnam.

” We are thinking of conducting the session in Visakhapatnam,” said finance and legislative affairs minister Yanamala Ramakrishnudu to media in Secretariat.

A decsion in this regard, he added, would be taken after the arrival of chief minister from his Turkey holidy tomorrow.

Government will finalize the dates also, he said.

If held , this would be second time the port-city hosting the Assembly, the fist being in 1953, in Andhra state. Interestingly, the second assembly is also being held in Andhra again, after losing Telangana areas as separate state.

When the Andhra stae was carved out of composte Madras state with Kurnool as the capital, on Octoger 1, 1953, the then chief minister Tanguturi Prakasam was very perticular about holding the session in Visakhapatnam. The first session was held in Summer in May 19545 in TLN Sabha hall at Andhra University.
To make the Hall,which was built in 1939, suitable to hold the Assembly, many changes were made. The speakers podium was built and space for treasurey bences was created on east side.
House Neelam Sanjeeva Reddy was the deputy leader and the opposition leaders was none other than his brother in law Tarimela Nagireddy. The ferocious argments that took place between Sanjeevareddy and Nagireddy are remembered till today as the greatest debate as Krishnarkjuna Yuddham.
But, In just six months after the session,Tanguturi Prakasam Pantulu government fell on November 6, 1954 when dissindent group moved a ‘no-confidence motion’ against ‘ndhra Kesari’ abinet.

Tension Builds Up in Andhra and Telangana Over Section-8


As expected, the political situation in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana has turned volatile following report of purported legal clarification by attorney-general Mukul Rohatgi to Governor ESL Narasimhan that he could monitor the cash-for-vote scandal. While pressure is mounting on KCR to rush to Delhi to oppose any such move by centre and to sit on fast, if necessary, to scuttle move in tracks, cabinet ministers from Andhra Pradesh urged chief minister Chandrababu Naidu to put pressure to implement the section 8 of AP Reorganization Act-2014. Tuesday saw intense activity in TDP and TRS camps both supporting the view and opposing it vehemently. While Telangana chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao met the governor to know the veracity of the media report about the centre’s decision. TRS circles claim that Rao had opposed any change in the status quo in the name of empowering the Raj Bhavan with Section 8 of AP Reorganization Act-2014. All the JACs have clarified that they would oppose the invoking section 8. While TJAC chairman Kodandaraom said they would not allow the empowering Raj Bhavan with special powers. While admitting that there was no clarity on the matter, Kodandaram said, resorting to Section 8 means usurping the powers of state. He said Governor would have to take the opinion of the Telangana Government on the matter.

NGO’s leader Devi Prasad said they would not hesitate to launch an agitation to oppose the move. Ministers Tummala Nageswara Rao, Talasani Srinivas Yadav also opposed the idea of invoking the controversial provisions of bifurcation Act. Rajya Sabha members K Kesava Rao said there was no confirmation from the centre on the NDTV report on empowering the Raj Bhavan with special monitoring powers. Even CPM joined chorus. T-state CPM secretary Tammineni Veerabhadram said there was clear evidence for the involvement of Chandrababu Naidu in the cash-for-vote case. On the other side of the border ministers Yanamala Ramakrishnudu, Pratipati Pulla Rao, Ravela Kishore Babu and P Narayana met chief minister Naidu and requested him to pressure on centre for the implementation of Section 8 of bifurcation Act. Similarly, minister Kamineni Srinivas and Deveneni Umamaheswar Rao also demanded the centre to authorize Governor to monitor all the cases under investigation. Talking to media, finance minister Yanamala said Telangana should not scuttle implementation of constitutional provisions. The ministers said Hyderabad had become insecure in TRS regime and only way for the protection of people was the invocation of Section 8. “TRS government is seizing the properties of institutes listed in schedule 9 and 10 of the Act which is illegal. Now phones of government functionaries have been tapped. Tomorrow attacks on properties of AP people cannot be ruled out,” they said. Meanwhile, there is even talk among the TDP circles that CM Naidu may go to New Delhi to exert pressure on the centre for the implementation of Section-8.
