Vijayawada : YSR Congress has demanded Chandrababu Naidu government to make public the allocation of funds in the annual budget for building the capital city and the details of amounts received from the Centre for the purpose.
Speaking to press reporters here on Thursday party spokesperson K Parthasarathi said: ‘ Chandrababu Naidu has been cheating people in the name of new capital city and foundation stone was laid for it on seven occasions and designs were changed at his whims and fancies spending money lavishly on unproductive means.
The foundation stone was laid by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on one occasion, Union Minister Arun Jaitley on another, Singapore leaders on one occasion and Chandrababu Naidu family had done it once and again the state says that foundation stone will be laid on Dasara again.
Each time the foundation stone function is held money has been spent lavishly and the extravaganza has no proper justification,’ he said.
During the division of the State, it was assured that the Centre would give all financial assistance for building the government infrastructure like Secretariat, Assembly and Council buildings, High Court and other such buildings.
We demand that the government announce how much money it has got from Centre so far and what is the amount earmarked in the budget for the building of capital city for which foundation stone is scheduled to be laid on Dasara, he said.
