'Jagan killing the capital,' Naidu observes after 'Chalo Amaravati'


After concluding his Chalo Amaravati tour on Thursday, TDP President and former Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh Chandrababu Naidu stated that CM Jaganmohan Reddy is 'killing the capital'.

"The capital project was created with our intellect, my intellect. We increased the valuation, arranged for investments from Singapore etc. But this government is now killing Amaravati. But it is not a personal matter concerning just me. It concerns the future of 6 crore people of Andhra Pradesh and the future of our children," Naidu said.

Naidu's Chalo Amaravati was strongly opposed by YSRCP which claims that it was because of his indecisiveness that the works in the capital city didn't move at all and even after 5 years, it remains barren. The YSRCP also alleged that many irregularities were committed in the works and also accused Naidu of resorting to insider trading.

Refuting YSRCP's stand that only five per cent of works were done in the capital region in all these years, Naidu said that a considerable amount of work was done and in some cases, even 90 per cent of construction was completed with furniture and other amenities were already provided. 

During his tour to the capital region and nearby villages, Naidu visited different projects like the MLA and IAS officers’ quarters, the NGO quarters, judges’ quarters etc.

"The High Court and Secretariat are here. They have called this a graveyard. Are all these ministers and their CM doing their duties from a graveyard? Is the HC serving justice from a graveyard? Legislation is being made from a graveyard?" he asked.

"We had brought in investment from Singapore, a respectable country known for minimal corruption. But this start-up area project was cancelled because of this government," Naidu accused.
