Chief Secretary Teaches The CRDA In His Style

eerie is happening in case of construction of AP’s capital city. There is
something suspicious going on behind Chandrababu’s going after companies of
Singapore. His involvement at every step, barring ministers and officials in
this matter is raising eyebrows. This is the topic of discussion among people
and political circles since quite some time. Ministers’ committee’s
recommendations expose the CM’s additional initiative in the whole matter. The
proposals receiving pre-submission approval from the CM, the files then going
