HYDERABAD: AP Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu on Thursday launched an allout attack against opposition parties, calling them ‘demons’ who are trying to create hurdles to the yagna to construct the new capital of Andhra Pradesh.
“Like Rakshasas, some of the parties such as the YSRC and the Congress are trying to create hurdles to our yagna to construct a world-class capital for AP,” Naidu said while addressing the second day session of Mahanadu here.
“But, I am sure, despite their demonic acts, I will realise my dream of building an ultra-modern capital, Amaravati, for AP,” he thundered, making it amply clear that the government would not go back on its decision.
Even as opposition parties are upping the ante against the State government’s move to construct a gigantic capital city in fertile agricultural lands in between Vijayawada and Guntur, Naidu said some parties are deriving sadistic pleasure by trying to create hurdles. The YSRC and Congress are leaving no stone unturned to stall the capital construction, he alleged.
Supporting his allegations, Naidu said, “If a petition filed by local farmers is accepted by the court, the leaders of the YSRC and the Congress are celebrating it. They are even bursting crackers, besides launching a propaganda against the government in the social media. It shows their desperate efforts to create hurdles.”
He alleged the YSRC had tried to create a controversy even on the auspicious timing fixed for Bhoomi Puja for the new capital.
