We have been seeing Telugu Desam Party president and former chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu taking U-turn on several issues right from special category status to English medium in government schools.
Now, Vice President Venkaiah Naidu has opined that the entire administration should be at one place which makes the governance efficient. Naidu made these comments in the wake of the 'Three Capitals' row which is shaking up the Andhra and farmers are agitating against it.
Earlier, it was only on Tuesday while addressing the first convocation of the National Institute of Technology at Tadepalligudem that Venkaiah had pitched for decentralized development. “Development has to get distributed and more focus should get laid on rural areas to check migration,” Venkaiah said, adding that concentrating all the offices and institutions in one place was not advisable.
Now, the deputy President took part in a private event organized by Swarna Bharati Trust in
Krishna district and off the record he had a chit-chat with media and said, ’'With all my 41 years of political experience, I opine that Chief Minister, High Court, Secretariat, and the entire system should be at one place. This makes things easy for the government."
However, he left the decision up to the state government. He requested that they should not see this from the political angle. If asked by the Centre on AP capital, he said he would make the same point.
