HYDERABAD: Chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao, who has decided to attend the Amaravati foundation stone laying ceremony in Andhra Pradesh, is all likely to flew to the venue rather than taking the road route as was proposed earlier.

Keeping in view the security concerns and the possibility of traffic snarls arising out of the visit of various dignitaries including Prime Minister Narendra Modi, officials looking after the security of KCR have decided that the CM will take the aerial route to AP. KCR would flew in a chopper, sources said.

KCR is scheduled to attend a function at Suryapet the previous day and plans to travel to Amaravati from there. It was decided earlier that he would reach Suryapet on Wednesday to attend a public meeting and stay at Suryapet overnight and go to Amaravati the next day by road.

But with security concerns and possible traffic snarls, the state police officials have suggested that the CM take the aerial route rather than road.

District police officials on Monday inspected the junior college grounds at Suryapet for preparing a temporary helipad for CM’s helicopter.

‘’If the CM stays back in Suryapet, he will fly from the temporary helipad at the junior college grounds. Otherwise, he would return to Hyderabad and fly from there to AP,’’ sources said.
