Urging the YSRCP government to book criminal cases in the alleged corruption that happened in the Amaravati construction process, BJP MP GVL Narasimha Rao accused former Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu of taking a huge amount of money for Polavaram and Amaravati projects but spending only a little sum of it.
He criticised Naidu for taking up only temporary buildings at Amavarati even though the Centre had sanctioned Rs 2,000 crore, and said that when 5,000 acres were needed for construction of the capital city, land much in excess of this was acquired. He alleged that construction of one sq. ft. cost Rs 10,000 in Amavarati.
Referring to the recent remarks by the state government doubting the suitability of Amaravati as a location for the state capital, the BJP MP demanded that the state government be clear on the issue and wondered about the fate of farmers who had volunteered to give up their land for the new capital.
"The development of the capital city was in the purview of the state government and not in the domain of the Centre", he said. "Hence the state government, which has all the evidence with regard to the misuse of public money, should book criminal cases on those responsible for it", demanded GVL.
