VIJAYAWADA: To give a boost to the state’s own classical dance ‘Kuchipudi’, the Andhra Pradesh government has constituted ‘Kuchipudi Natyaramam’.

At a meeting with the officials of tourism and culture in Hyderabad and in a video conference with the Krishna district collector, chief secretary IYR Krishna Rao issued instructions to collector Babu A to identify land to establish Kuchipudi Natyaramam, at Kuchipudi in Krishna district and also suggested that the file related to it be circulated to the finance department for clearances. An advisory board may be constituted to monitor the progress of the Natyaramam, the chief secretary said.

The district collector told the chief secretary that 100 acre land would be needed for locating the Kuchipudi Natyaramam and that in Kuchipudi village there was no government land of that extent.

Though there is 126 acre land in Vedamvari Cheruvu, the land belongs to farmers and the government would have to acquire it from them. This would cost the government about `22 crore.
