Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu said at the India Today South Conclave that he will build a bigger and better city than Hyderabad. Amaravati, the Andhra capital, will be the best city in India.
Hyderabad will become the capital of Telangana in 2024. When Telangana was formed in 2014, it was decided that Hyderabad will remain the shared capital between the two states till 2024.
Chandrababu Naidu was very candid in his conversations at the India Today South Conclave. He responded all the questions with open mind. He also spoke about Demonetization, PM Modi and other issues.
CM Chandrababu Naidu said that “A water grid, world class capital city Amaravati and human resource development are the three top priorities of my government. Rest all will fall in place.”
He also said that he will make an Andhra Pradesh model. This will be a great digital leap towards growth and success of the state. He also said that people should remember him forever for that Andhra Pradesh model.
Making a U-turn, Chandrababu Naidu said demonetisation was good for the country. The BJP ally at the Centre had earlier questioned the move to ban Rs 500 and Rs 1000 notes. He has said he did not know if there is a solution to the cash crisis.
Chandrababu Naidu said that “In my state, there is no cash crunch. Ninety per cent of the people are supporting the move, only five to ten per cent are opposing.”
On his relations with Prime Minister Modi, Naidu said, “Ideas sometimes may differ, but overall we should work for the betterment of the country.”
Naidu was part of the first NDA government headed by BJP veteran Atal Bihari Vajpayee. When asked which Prime Minister was better, he said, “We should not compare Atal Bihari Vajpayee with Narendra Modi.”
We wish all the best to Chandrababu Naidu for his vision to make Andhra Predesh a model state.
