New AP Capital: Donakonda best bet, says Concerned Citizens Forum

The Hindu
Quote:
The Concerned Citizens Forum, a body comprising former bureaucrats, scientists, advocates and those from other sections of society, is batting for the location of a new capital for Andhra Pradesh at a place where Coastal Andhra and Rayalaseema meet, along the belt traversing Donakonda, Kurichedu, Konakalametla, Markapur, Pedda Aaraveedu, Darsi, Podili and Tripurantakam mandals.

Former Indian Police Service officer and Chairman, Telugu Praja Vedika, C. Anjaneya Reddy, is among those who are chipping in with their experience in the location of a capital for the State.

A delegation of the forum earlier met AP Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu and explained their contention. The choice of Government land was simply because private land would be horrendously-expensive and because a new Government could not just mobilise the resources to acquire private land, they said.

Mr. Reddy sought to impress upon Mr. Naidu how most State capitals across the country were old cities that had evolved into their roles for historical reasons. People of Seemandhra he said, had a truncated State without a capital, thanks to the ‘realpolitik’ of the Congress party. He regretted that people had the dubious distinction of losing their capital city twice in less than a century, once in the 1950s to their Tamil cousins after building Madras and now Hyderabad to their Telangana brethren after contributing to elevate a medieval town into a world-city over half a century.

The body comprises among others, former Indian Police Service officer C. Anjaneya Reddy, former Chief Secretary K. Jayabharat Reddy, bureaucrat G. Kumaraswamy Reddy, former High Court Judge Gopal Rao, distinguished scientist Subhodananda Rao, medical practitioner Dr. Chandrayudu, advocate G.R. Reddy and former Chief Commissioner Income-Tax Sudhakar Reddy and other politicians from Ongole, Nellore and Rayalaseema districts.

The body has launched upon the endeavour of garnering support from political leaders and bring about a broad consensus, starting with Mr. Naidu, followed by the Leader of the Opposition in AP Legislative Assembly, Y.S. Jaganmohan Reddy, Pradesh Congress Committee President N. Raghuveera Reddy, apart from meeting representatives of the Communist Party of India and CPI-M too, in a phased manner.

On Tuesday, they called on Mr. Jaganmohan Reddy and sought his support to their proposal for a new capital city, explaining the reasons why they felt the location they suggested would be ideal. Mr. Reddy is said to have recalled that he had already spoken in the Legislative Assembly about the placement of a capital where about 30,000 to 35,000 acres of Government land was available. He assured them that he would take their proposal forward in any manner he could.
Citizens forum meets Jagan Reddy over Andhra Pradesh capital

DC
Quote:
The citizens forum led by former director-general of police C. Anjaneya Reddy is now rallying to gather political support for their demand to set up capital in Rayalaseema region as per the Sribagh pact.

The team on Tuesday met Leader of Opposition Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy and submitted a memorandum seeking support.

“The location of capital shall be acceptable to all regions. The capital selection shall not lead to new controversy. As per 1937 Sribagh pact capital should be located in Rayalaseema and High Court in Coastal Andhra region. Kurnool was capital of Andhra State. Naturally now the capital has to go to Kurnool,” said Mr Anjaneya Reddy.

A.P. government in a fix over choice for capital

The Hindu
Quote:
After lobbying hard for the Vijayawada-Guntur stretch as the first choice for the new capital before the Union government-appointed Sivaramakrishnan Committee, the Andhra Pradesh government appears to be in confusion and wants to tread cautiously.

Municipal Administration Minister P. Narayana, who in his capacity as head of the State committee on the capital, submitted a representation to the committee in New Delhi pitching for the Vijayawada-Guntur belt last week, now says no final decision has been taken and that the government supported the Central committee’s view that it should be centrally located.
Only private land

Apparently, the government seems to be taking a re-look at its own proposal after the Sivaramakrishnan Committee made its presentation to Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu on July 26 in Hyderabad raising some vital issues relating to the State’s choice for capital.

A former bureaucrat, K.C. Sivaramakrishnan, reportedly highlighted limited availability of government land in the stretch and wondered how the government would pool thousands of crores for buying private land given the State’s decision to have a “world class capital” spread over 20,000 to 25,000 acres. His estimate was that the government might require a whopping Rs. 40,000 crore, going by the provisions of the new Land Acquisition Act as it needs to pay one-and-a-half times of the land cost which at present was about Rs. 50 lakh per acre.
Dispersed development

At a media conference that day, Mr. Sivaramakrishnan pressed on the same point without of course giving these figures. He said the committee was not in favour of acquiring vast stretches of fertile land suitable for various crops as it affected food security in the long run. It was also against building a “super city” for a capital as it was an outdated concept.

The Legislative Assembly, High Court, Secretariat and all departmental offices and all the 190-odd departmental offices need not be at one place like it is in Hyderabad now. Instead, the government should think of a dispersed model of development and see that about 13 to 14 locations all over the State develop simultaneously with a central location having good connectivity to all districts as a functional capital.

Taking a cue, Mr. Narayana stopped mentioning about the Vijayawada-Guntur stretch and started talking about centrality of the capital and of locating the 11 central institutions allotted to the State in each of the 13 districts. When asked about the government’s response to the committee, another Minister said the government was simply unable to come to a decision “as too many complex issues” were involved. The government was now planning to hold a public debate and even consult other political parties to see that its decision did not become controversial.

Vijayawada to be ad hoc capital of Andhra Pradesh

The Prakasam barrage on the Krishna is a landmark of the emerging power centre of Vijayawada.

New capital should be unique and slum-free: Naidu

The Andhra Pradesh government has decided to have an ad hoc capital at Vijayawada until the needed infrastructure and other projects for the new capital are completed.

At a meeting with members of the advisory committee on Capital City at the Lake View Guest house here on Tuesday, Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu asked them to see that the ad hoc capital will house key administrative offices during the interregnum.

A delegation from McKinsey made a presentation, ‘Vision for A.P. Capital’, at the meeting which was attended by Municipal Administration Minister P. Narayana, chairman of the committee, and members, industrialists Srini Raju, G.V. Sanjay Reddy, M. Prabhakar Rao and S. Bommidala.

Mr. Naidu is keen that at least six key departments are shifted to Vijayawada in the next few months and asked officials to scout for buildings close to Gannavaram airport.

As for the new full-fledged capital, he asked the committee members to chalk out a master plan, which should become the “talk of the world” and emerge as an important tourist destination. He said the new capital should be unique and slum-free. He wanted the share of flora and fauna to be 60 per cent in the proposed capital city, according to a release here.

The Chief Minister said there should be equal distribution of social infrastructure facilities like schools and hospitals. He also asked the committee to study land distribution for governmental, residential and cultural purposes in the new capital.

He advised them to visit and study other Indian cities like Chandigarh, New Raipur, Navi Mumbai and Gandhinagar before this month-end. They have been asked to take cues from global cities like Brasilia, Singapore, Putrajaya (Malaysia) in building A.P.’s capital city and complete their tour of South East Asia, Europe, China, Japan, Korea and Middle East and by October end.

The release said Mr. Naidu recalled how the former U.S. President, Bill Clinton, praised Hyderabad’s e-governance and technology initiatives during the latter’s visit to the city.

HYDERABAD: The AP Government has more or less decided to make Vijayawada the temporary state capital, given its central location and easy access for people from other parts of the state. The nine-member advisory panel on the capital city, headed by Urban Development Minister P Narayana, met Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu here on Tuesday. It is learnt that officials were asked to shift the headquarters of various departments to the ad-hoc capital in a phased manner.

VIJAYAWADA: With the state government deciding to shift its base to Vijayawada, making it a temporary capital of Andhra Pradesh, an upbeat mood prevailed in the city Tuesday. Though Vijayawada is regarded as the frontrunner in the capital race, in the absence of any official communication from politicians, businessmen have adopted a ‘wait and watch’ policy.

Now that an official announcement has been made by the AP cabinet Tuesday, people from all walks of life were visibly elated. “Vijayawada being announced as the temporary capital will be seen as a giant stride in the process of becoming permanent capital. This will surely give the city a lot of elevation,” expressed RV Subba Rao, a city-based entrepreneur.

With the government offices likely to be shifted to the city soon, all eyes are now on the office space available. Medha IT Park near Gannavaram, Government Polytechnic College, DRDA and DWMA campus at Gollapudi and the newly constructed irrigation office complex, among others may be used to accommodate the offices, to be shifted from Hyderabad. For instance, there is about two lakh square feet of office space available at Medha IT Park, but 20,000 sq ft has already been occupied.

Despite irrigation minister Devineni Umamaheswara Rao is conducting all the activities from the newly constructed irrigation office in Vijayawada and the chief engineers having shifted their offices here, the new office can house the other departments as well. “Vijayawada has been denied its rightful share for the past six decades. But the announcement of the city as temporary capital will give it at an opportunity to emerge as golden Vijayawada. Even our builders have decided to help the government in shifting the base and are ready to allocate the available office space here to the government offices,” informed Greater Vijayawada Builders Association president Gadde Rajling.

Though it is just a temporary capital, there is a notion prevalent among everyone that this is just a step further in the process of making Vijayawada a permanent capital. With this, even the realty sector is poised to grow. As a result, land, office and residential spaces, which were quite far from common man’s reach in almost all places, will be corrected.

Not just realty and businesses, but all the other sectors are expecting a bright future ahead because of the move. Vijayawada will witness an altogether different growth following the announcement of it becoming the temporary capital, which will go down as an important land mark in the history of city.

“Vijayawada is located centrally and has all facilities like sufficient space, infrastructure, connectivity and water. Selecting the city as a temporary capital will help the denizens from all the 13 districts in finding some sort of work. Though Hyderabad is the common capital for 10 years, there is no way that we stay there for long now that even the IAS officers are being humiliated. In this milieu, shifting the government offices to Vijayawada, by announcing it as temporary capital, will not just send positive signals to the AP public, but also helps the administration machinery to settle in the state and development will take off soon,” Vijayawada Central MLA Bonda Umamaheshwara Rao exuded confidence.
