VIJAYAWADA: CPM politburo member BV Raghavulu has stressed the need to organise an all-party meeting to arrive at consensus before announcing the new capital of Andhra Pradesh state. He was in the city Tuesday to participate in the SFI’s national conference on education system.

Taking potshots at chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu for unilaterally deciding on new capital, Raghavulu said that the capital city is not an issue related to a party or a region. All parties have to be consulted and the interests of people from all the regions have to be considered before announcing it.

“Chandrababu is favouring Vijayawada-Guntur region due to ulterior motives. If Vijayawada has to be selected, then the government has to announce clearly about the measures it would take to develop regions like Uttharandhra and Rayalaseema,” he alleged and also found fault with the Sivaramakrishnan Committee for not coming up with a specific recommendation and failing to meet the expectations of the people.
