VIJAYAWADA:Taking serious exception to the state government hiring the services of event managers to conduct the foundation-laying ceremony for AP capital, the CPM CRDA committee on Tuesday demanded cancellation of the tenders.

Speaking to mediapersons here, CPM CRDA secretary Ch Babu Rao said that it was unfortunate that chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu had converted the entire exercise of construction of capital as his personal affair.

Describing the construction of the capital as a scam, the CPM leader said that CRDA chairman Chandrababu Naidu and municipal minister P Narayana should take the responsibility for the shady goings on. “Without involving  locals  in capital construction,  Naidu is inviting the Prime Ministers of Singapore and Japan to attend foundation ceremony,” Babu Rao said.

Babu Rao wanted to know how  the CM could spend crores of rupees on event management while not being in a position to pay a penny as pension to the farmhands . “We demand publication of a white paper on the activities of the CRDA, the consultants and the companies who are going to be part of the capital construction activity,” he said.
