Temporary capital, waste of money: RK

Hyderabad, YSR Congress has said that
TDP government is continuing with its extravaganza even as the economy
is being portrayed as shabby and found fault with the State’s decision
to build temporary capital between Vijayawada and Guntur.

“This is gross waste of public money. Municipal Administration
Minister P Narayana announcing that a temporary capital will come up
between Vijayawada and Guntur adds to extravaganza of the tate. We
demand that administration should be carried out in the government
buildings available in the two cities without burdening the exchequer,”
Party MLA Alla Ramakrishna Reddy told reporters here on Wednesday.

one side, the State has been tightfisted when it comes to welfare
measures and has downsized pensions, loan waiver and other welfare
schemes but on the other hand it has been very lavish on land allotments
and releasing funds to projects to benefit contractors, he said. The
double standards of the State are once again exposed when it has agreed
to acquire 22.72 acres of land from Arihant Pojects, the developers of
Singapore Township near Mangalagiri and compensate with an equal extent
of land in the nearby area.

Why the same formula does not apply
to Thulluru farmers as well, he asked. The State is taking land from the
farmers in acres and giving in yards. There are no answers as to when
and where the land will be given. This discrimination will be fought by
the farmers and we will stand by them.

It is a fact that some
farmers in the low-lying areas are willing to give up land voluntarily
but majority of farmers are resisting and are ready to file the
prescribed Form to express their objection but the officials are not
available to receive them. Once the Forms are filed and the regulated
15-day time is lapsed, legal options will be explored and our Party
under the leadership of YS Jagan Mohan Reddy will always be with the
farmers fighting for justice, he said.

While the Revenue
Minister KE Krishna Murthy seems to be inactive, Municipal Minister
Narayana has been hyperactive as he is the yes-man of Chief Minister, he

When there is nearly 20 acres of government land
available in Mangalagiri, the government going for constructing
temporary capital is squandering away public money he said.
