Jagan to alter Amaravati master plan?

According to the reports coming out of Amaravathi, YS Jagan Mohan Reddy is said to have decided to make drastic changes to the master plan of AP’s new capital, Amaravathi, to bring down the burden on the state government.

If the sources are to be believed, Jagan had already told the AP New Capital Reconstruction Development officials that the capital city doesn’t need such a huge area and it can be restricted to only buildings and infrastructure needed for an operational capital.

He suggested that the master plan for Amaravathi could be altered in such a way that only government buildings such as secretariat, assembly, high court and residential quarters for ministers, MLAs, judges and bureaucrats could be there in the capital region.

Sources said, “After keeping the land required for this core capital region, in addition to infrastructure facilities such as roads, power supply, drainage and greenery, the remaining land could be returned to the farmers. There’s no need to disturb all the villages in the capital region. “It looks like Jagan gave the green signal to ongoing construction after reworking the tenders and completing them in a specified time. Jagan also said, “The previous government has already made huge borrowings and there will be no more loans. The loan from the World Bank can also be rejected, “Jagan told them.
