Legislative complex opened
Chief Minister Mr. N. Chandrababu Naidu inaugurated the Legislative Council and Assembly Complex at Velagapudi in Guntur district during last fortnight.
Addressing the gathering, Mr. Naidu said it had been his endeavour to build a world-class capital city and the Interim Government Complex (IGC) took shape beautifully in about 210 days due to the hard work by the AP-Capital Region Development Authority (AP-CRDA).
Though Hyderabad was made the common capital of A.P and Telangana, the government could soon start functioning from Amaravati due to the generosity of farmers in parting with 34,000 acres of their fertile lands under the Land Pooling System. “Your gesture helped me in proving to those who divided the State in an outrageous manner that the people of A.P. are capable of bouncing back howsoever deep a crisis may be,” he said.
The Opposition parties and other vested interests approached courts in their bid to bring the construction of the IGC to a halt, but to no avail as the government could clear the hurdles one by one with the cooperation of farmers and the general public, the Chief Minister observed.
“Leaders of Opposition parties should have participated in this event, which is in the larger public interest, but they stayed away for reasons best known to them.”
