Amaravati: Urban Development Minister Botsa Satyanarayana speaking to media persons here on Thursday said that no one has doubts about the state capital Amaravati. This came after the Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy held a review meeting with top officials and ministers on capital city work. Botsa explained at length the capital city works which are under construction.
The state capital belongs to five crore people and not to one particular social group, the minister said in reaction to allegations made by TDP leaders. He also made a clear statement that the issue of Amaravati being flood-prone did not come up for discussion.
Botsa said there were no agreements with banks and financial institutions for works worth Rs.35,000 crore launched by the Telugu Desam Party (TDP) previously. The minister pointed out that several bills relating to the works undertaken in Amaravati were pending.
He also said that Chandrababu Naidu's relatives and BJP MP who was in the TDP till recently, YS Chowdary, purchased vast tracts of lands in and around Amaravati.
Botsa said they had proof that Sri Bharat purchased lands in Amaravati during TDP regime showing the documents to the media. He also stated that he is not concerned with the statements on the capital city which were made by others.
