VIJAYAWADA:Development of the state will be in decentralised fashion and will not be concentrated at one place, Union minister of state for science and technology Y Satyanarayana Chowdary (Sujana Chowdary) has said.

In fact, AIIMS will come up much near to Vijayawada, so will be NIT in Eluru, which is hardly 70 km away. More private and foreign institutes will come up across the state and even institutes like Stanford and Harvard,” he said.

With regard to airport development, he said that Rs 105 crore has been allocated for the expansion of Gannavaram airport and a decision on setting up another airport in the capital region will be taken soon.

CRDA commissioner N Srikanth briefed the ministers over the latest development with regard to capital region. The area has been marked into three zones - industrial zone (Nuziveedu, Gudivada, Sattenapalle, Gannavaram and Nandigama), no-development zone (area having 75 per cent farmlands) and transport zone, he added.

Irrigation minister Devineni Umamaheswara Rao said that the Kanaka Durga flyover has been approved.
