Chandrababu lashes out at Botsa for comparing Amaravati to burial ground


TDP chief Chandrababu Naidu hit out at Andhra Pradesh's Municipal Administration and Urban Development Minister Botsa Satyanarayana for comparing capital Amaravati with a 'burial ground'. Naidu sought Satyanarayana's resignation for his 'unforgivable comment' and asked him to respect the sentiments of the local farmers. 

Stating that Satyanarayana through his comments has hurt the sentiments of 5 crore people of the state, the former Chief Minister said that along with the locals and people if Andhra Pradesh, the YSRCP minister has insulted every single person who had participated in the foundation stone laying ceremony back in 2015.

"If you can't respect your Capital City, at least respect the sentiments of farmers who pooled their lands," tweeted Naidu.

"Respect the name which was derived from the glorious civilization of yore, respect the identity and hopes of 5 Crore Telugu people whom you represent," he said.

Satyanarayana, on Monday, while criticising Naidu for his works as the Chief Minister had likened Amaravati to a burial site by claiming that no works happened during the last five years in the region. 

Amaravati, which is the brainchild of Naidu has seen some major investors such as the World Bank and Singapore consortium withdrawing from the developments of crucial projects in recent months. Naidu has claimed that this has happened solely because of YSRCP government's indifferent attitude towards the welfare of the people including farmers who voluntarily pooled in 33,000 acres of land for the development.
