GUNTUR: The state government is planning to modify the Amaravati core capital design after severe criticism from the public for selecting a 50-year-old design.
CRDA vice-chairman P. Narayana said that the Amaravati core capital design submitted by Maki Associates of Japan would be put on display for the people in all 13 districts to know their opinion and will be modified as per their suggestions.
He said that suggestions reflecting the culture and tradition of Andhra people would be incorporated in the designs. Mr Narayana, along with AP Legislative Council chairman A. Chakrapani, reached Velagapudi on Friday to inspect the ongoing temporary Secretariat works.
Mr Narayana said that Maki Associates submitted only the concept design of Amaravati and it can be changed according to the needs. He said that already, the core capital design was kept for public display for two days at Vijayawada.
Mr Narayana said that the Chief Minister was keen on moving forward as per the wishes of the people with regard to the core capital design.
It may be recalled that Deccan Chronicle reported about the old design of Amaravati government core on March 30 and the leaders of the Telugu Desam also took the issue to the notice of the government....
