APCRDA Presents Capital Designs To MLAs
Amaravati: The Andhra Pradesh Capital Region Development Authority (APCRDA) had made a power point presentation on the Amaravati city designs submitted by the Norman Foster group on Saturday. CRDA principle secretary Ajay Jain gave the power point presentation to Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu and the legislators in the Assembly Hall.
Ajay Jain said that the city Amaravati would have 27 kilometers long waterfront along the river. The city would have nine theme cities and 24 townships. Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu would lay foundation stone for the seven important roads in the capital on Ugadi day. The speed access roads work is scheduled to be completed by the end of May.
The administrative city would come up in 900 acres and the final designs would be ready by the end of April. The city would have two iconic towers that would be completed by December 2018.
The Chief Minister had directed the APCRDA officials to get suggestions from the experts on the designs and ensure that the final designs are ready by the end of April.
Meanwhile Opposition YSR Congress boycotted the power point presentation of the Amaravati plans. Jagan Mohan Reddy said that the Chief Minister was fooling people by talking so great about power point presentations and digital presentations of the capital plans. He said that the government had taken some more time out of the Assembly without giving a chance to the Opposition to raise peoples’ problems.
YSR Congress legislator R K Roja said that the Chief Minister had entered the third player in the capital planning. She said that the government had first released one set of plans and claimed that Amaravati would be like that. Later, Japan’s Maki Associates had entered the drama and submitted new plans which were again claimed to be the designs for the Amaravati city. Now, a third player, Norman Fosters had joined the high digital drama to fool the people with new designs.
