Pompous capital may divide AP
Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu’s dream of constructing a world-class state capital may divide the state once again,” YSRCP senior leader M V Mysura Reddy said on Monday. Speaking to The Hans India on Monday, he said “Naidu’s unprecedented concentration on capital city coming up between Vijayawada- Guntur
Rayalaseema people are feeling belittled by government’s undue concentration on the capital region. Discontent is brewing as Naidu’s several promises to the region remain only on the paper. Kurnool is not considered for capital. Huge investments, major institutions are being earmarked for other regions- YSRCP leader M V Mysura Reddy
Hyderabad: “Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu’s dream of constructing a world-class state capital may divide the state once again,” YSRCP senior leader M V Mysura Reddy said on Monday. Speaking to The Hans India on Monday, he said “Naidu’s unprecedented concentration on capital city coming up between Vijayawada- Guntur would result in division of State as the people of Rayalaseema region feel that injustice has been meted out to their region in the development of the new state after the bifurcation of AP.”
The YSR party leader accused Naidu of deceiving the backward Rayalaseema by not fulfilling the promises made for the region. All the promises he had made for Rayalaseema remain on paper. Simmering discontent over the losing capital city is high among the people of Rayalseema. If the government does not address this issue in time to revive another movement for a separate state.
He said that the Seema people were angry for not considering Kurnool, the capital city of erstwhile Andhra State, as the new capital of the AP. Strong discontent had also erupted as the government was earmarking huge investments in Krishna and Guntur districts only.
“The establishment of Metro rail, Outer Ring Road (ORR) and AIIMS (All India Institute of Medical Sciences) in and around capital city has sent wrong signals in the development process. Chief Minister’s gimmicks to divert the attention of Rayalaseema people will be a futile exercise. He is only alienating the people,” Reddy observed.
