Hyderabad, Sept 8: Reiterating that Chandrababu Naidu has been pursuing with his agenda of commercialisation in the name of capital area formation, YSR Congress has said that he has been cheating people in the name capital city and demanded a white paper on the entire project.
Speaking to media here on Friday party MLA Alla Ramakrishna Reddy said, ' Chandrababu Naidu will go down in the history of the state as the chief minister who had laid foundation stone for capital city on multiple occasions.
Initially it was Prime Minister Narendra Modi, followed by Finance Minister Arun Jaitley and others and yet nothing has moved so far. Water from all the sacred rivers and sand from across the country was brought as a token of invoking the national spirit but still nothing concrete has happened as the project has been running on commercial lines and not emerging as people's capital.'
Till now the foundation stone was laid for capital city for a record seven times and Chandrababu Naidu has been pursuing his real estate agenda strongly without giving any respect to the sentiments of the people.
Even the former chief secretary IVR Krishna Rao had endorsed our view that the capital city was not being coming up for the benefit of the ruling class and not for people. Sivarama Krishanan Committee too rejected this area for being the capital but the Chief Minister went ahead with the plans due to commercial interests, he said.
Chief Minister has been shunting upright officers out and appointing people who toe his line and is carrying out the corrupt practices, he said and rejected the idea of people voluntarily giving land for the capital project and the talk of nine cities did not materialize till now.
We demand a white paper on the entire capital formation project, he said.
