Telugu Desam Party supremo and former chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu blamed his successor Y S Jaganmohan Reddy for reveres policy on the new capital Amaravati. Chandrababu Naidu said due to the reverse policy of the new government on the capital, the investments to the state, which are in pipeline are going back. He said that the World Bank and the Asian Infrastructure and Investment Bank have also gone back from the State causing heavy loss, he said.
Chandrababu Naidu addressed the TDP leaders from Telangana at the party office in Guntur on Wednesday where he tried to compare his visionary administration with that of the reverse administration of Jaganmohan Reddy. Chandrababu Naidu said that he had developed Hyderabad by widening the roads, constructing the flyovers, planning massive projects like outer ring road, international airport at Shamshabad and others which have helped Hyderabad to be on the global map.
The entry of Amazon to Hyderabad was because of the city’s global reach, he said and added that his contribution in developing the city had helped in many such major investments coming. He also said that P V Sindhu could bring great victory to the State because of his initiative in giving land to Badminton Academy in which she was trained. He asserted that the rulers should have such vision to create opportunities for the people to grow and investments to come.
The TDP chief is not happy with the present government keeping his dream project of Amaravati aside. He is trying to put pressure on the government from different quarters, including the farmers from the capital region holding protests. The TDP had, thus succeeded in creating some sort of confusion among the people whether the government would continue the capital here or shift it. The TDP made a successful attempt to make people debate on the issue and the political parties to toe this line.
However, Chief Minister Y S Jaganmohan Reddy is scheduled to hold a review meeting on the capital this evening where he is expected to make an announcement clearing the air.
