Former Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister and Telugu Desam Party (TDP) President Chandra Babu Naidu on Friday said the governor's decision on decentralisation of the state Pradesh administration and the cancellation of Capital Region Development Authority (CRDA) Bill is a historical mistake.
Reaction to Governor Biswabhushan Harichandan’s approval to the Bills, Naidu said, “Today is a dark day in the history of the state. It is unconstitutional. The governor’s decision creates unnecessary confusion among the people.”
Naidu said about 29,000 farmers have sacrificed their lands for the capital with confidence in his government in 2014. He alleged that the ruling YSR Congress Party government has destroyed the capital and ruined the people's dreams.
“The three capitals are nowhere in the world. These Bills are against the AP Reorganisation Act, 2014. YSRCP supported Amaravati when they were in the opposition and now they are opposing. People need decentralisation in development, employment and job opportunities," said Naidu.
Naidu said Amaravati is the central point of the state and during the declaration of the city as the capital, they had announced the district-wise development plan for industries expansion.
