VIJAYAWADA: Municipal administration and urban development minister Botsa Satyanarayana had reiterated that the company belonging to actor and Hindupur MLA Nandamuri Balakrishna’s in-laws, was allotted land in the capital region after TD came to power in 2015. Later the said land in Jayantipuram in Jaggaiahpeta was brought under the purview of CRDA, he said.
Responding to Botsa’s remarks made two days ago, Balakrishna’s son-in-law Sri Bharath in Vizag told reporters that the land was allotted in 2012 and not in 2015.
After the review meeting with the Chief Minister on capital city works by CRDA on Thursday, Botsa showed the GO that had allotted land to Sri Bharath’s company VBC Fertilisers and Chemicals in 2015. He asked Bharath to show the GO that had allotted land in 2012.
He also said that all the tenders for capital works given by the TD government were cancelled.
The minister said that the YSRC government would call tenders again as per the financial position of the state.
He said that of the total 64,000 developed plots that were to be given to the farmers who had offered their land for pooling, around 45,000 plots had been registered. He also said that at present, around Rs 2800 crores bills regarding the capital construction work were pending. He also said that the new capital city did not belong to one particular community but belonged to everyone.
