The Bharatiya Janatha Party is facing some tough time out in the center with their back to back setbacks in Maharashtra and Jharkhand. Now, in AP there are not even in the place to play the second fiddle in any of the administrative opinions that the state government took in recent times. One has to expect their firm stand and unity on key issues of the Andhra Pradesh but that is not what is happening in their party right now.
It is well known that the Jagan’s three capital decision has been the talk of the state since weeks and the opposition is targeting fiercely Jagan Mohan Reddy upon this issue. While the BJP Leaders like Kanna Lakshminarayana and Sujana Chowdary have opposed the change of capital, Vishnu Kumar Raju welcomed the announcement about the shifting of capital.
Two days ago, BJP AP Chief Kanna Lakshminarayana staged a protest in Amaravati against the decision of YCP Govt to make Visakha an Administrative Capital. Earlier, Sujana Chowdary also assured that the capital is not going anywhere from Amaravthi and seemed confident as he said that his comments are after his discussion with the center.
But, Vishnu Kumar Raju opined Visakhapatnam has got every right and necessary resources to become the Administrative Capital. He went on to say no other region in the state has got such a luxury. The Ex-MLA believes construction costs can get restricted if Visakha becomes the capital as there are enough structures required for administration. Mr. Raju added, 'YCP Government is saving hundreds of crores through Reverse Tendering. This fund can be used to construct remaining structures’.
He even expressed his due confidence on the AP CM that he would save Amaravathi framers in one way or another. So, let’s wait for the BJP’s high command’s reaction to his statements.
