Speaking after the APNGO felicitation meeting at Vijayawada on Saturday, AP Chief Minister Chandra Babu Naidu said that he would make Vijayawada as his base of activity and spend more time here afterwards and relegate activity in Hyderabad. Naidu said that the final decision on the location of the new capital will be declared within ten days as then Shivaramakrishna committee is all set to submit its report next week indicating five options for the new capital.
He said the NDA government has offered full support and assistance to build the new capital city within five years and as an advance Rs.5000 crore is being released by next month.
It may be recalled that it’s been over a month Naidu sworn in as the CM, he is yet to have an office at secretariat and Centre is yet to divide IAS officers among AP and Telangana. There are a slew of challenges for Naidu to straighten up the things and start working.
