Addressing the Seminar, attended by more than 2000 industrialists, at the Radisson Blue Hotel here on Tuesday, the Chief Minister reaffirmed his commitment to make Visakhapatnam the Administrative Capital.

The Chief Minister has claimed that he is the only person striving to make Visakhapatnam as ‘Executive’ capital city of AP. He has also claimed that he is fighting against all opposition parties and a section of media.

Dwelling at length on the advantages the city has to become the Executive Capital, he alleged that the Opposition parties and groups, along with their friendly media, are opposing the idea of Visakhapatnam as the executive capital city for the simple reason that they have their interests elsewhere.

Jagan Mohan Reddy said: “I am not against Amaravati to be developed as the Capital city but they need to spend around Rs 1 lakh crore over a period of 20 years pumping in Rs 5,000 crore every year to build up the Capital-necessitated infrastructure in around 50,000 acres of virgin land.”

“Who knows, the estimates may go up and we may require spending around Rs 5 lakah crore to construct our Capital at Amaravati over a period of time,” he stated.

Neglecting these facts, the opposition media is shamelessly making a hue and cry indulging in land grabbing allegations against them, he said, adding that they don’t want the Chief Minister to sit here as their interests lie in Amaravati.

However, Visakhapatnam has the entire necessary infrastructure to be the administrative capital for the State and they need to give only final touches to the city, he added.

It may be mentioned here that the Jagan Mohan Reddy headed AP government has announced the creation of three capital cities. Visakhapatnam will be the ‘Executive Capital city’, Kurnool will be the Judicial Capital and Amaravati will be the Legislative Capital city.
