If you are dejected with Center cheating Andhra Pradesh over Special Status issue, brace up for another one. Center is trying to inflate the funds given for Capital Construction. A few days ago, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley in Rajya Sabha went on to say that 2050 Crore was given to the Capital.
Union Minister from TDP, Sujana Chowdary immediately objected telling that 1000 Crore of that 2050 Crore is not for capital and is for the Underground drainage system in Vijayawada and Guntur. Arun Jaitley did not respond on that back then. Now the other day, Planning minister Rao Inderjit Singh in a written reply to Rajya Sabha also said the same thing.
Center is planning to confine its assistance to Amaravati for a simple 2500 Crore. By including that 1000 Crore in Capital account as well, Center is trying to wind up the Capital Assistance with another 450 Crore. The 2500 Crore will not even fund a quarter of infrastructure development in the capital.
