Naidu once again reveals his opportunistic nature
CBN appeals for center intervene in Amaravathi issue
Once Naidu blamed Modi, now he requests the PM
Former chief minister N.Chandrababu Naidu has addressed the activists of Amaravathi Sadhana samithi on the occasion of completetion of 200 days of protest.
Once Naidu blamed Modi for cheating the people of AP by giving only soil and water but not any funds and challenged that himself would complete the project without any support of center. But interestingly today he appealed the union government to look into the issue and recognize the emotion and sentiment of the public of the state. with this, Naidu has again revealed his attitude of dual tongue. Once he blamed Modi for not honoring the emotions of AP people and now he requesting the center to intervene in this issue and support Amaravati. Addressing a protest organized by TDP to mark the occasion, Naidu called up on people to continue 'save Amaravati, save Andhra Pradesh' movement. Chandrababu alleged that Jaganmohan Reddy government hatched many conspiracies to kill new Andhra Pradesh's capital Amaravati, which would have brought investment to the state and jobs to its people. "Was it our mistake to build a state capital which the whole world should admire," asked Naidu.
After Naidu's TDP lost power in the elections last year Jagan government decided to develop three state capitals, shifting some capital functions from Amaravati to Visakhapatnam and Kurnool. It announced that Amaravati will continue as the legislative capital while Visakhapatnam and Kurnool will be developed as executive and judicial capitals respectively. Alleging that the move would harm their interests, Amaravati farmers have been staging protests against the government's decision. They are demanding that Amaravati be developed as the only state capital.
The former chief minister recalled that his government had embarked on developing Amaravati as the state capital as it was centrally located. He alleged that Jagan government tried to suppress Amaravati movement and used repressive measures against the protestors including women. The leader of opposition said the government violated human rights. Naidu stated that Amaravathi has support from the people living in around 200 countries, but interestingly when Naidu was speaking online, only less than 200 people were viewing and listening his speech.
