Vastavam web: Here is a piece of good news for the youth in Kadapa. The state government will lay the foundation stone for a steel plant in the district on December 27. The setting up of Kadapa steel plant has turned controversial of late with the Centre dragging its feet. It is one of the promises made in the AP State Reorganisation Act, 2014 but the Centre had not been showing any interest in setting the plant ever since the division of the state.
Naidu, at Gnana Bheri on Tuesday, said that the Centre had become very indifferent to the needs of Andhra Pradesh, particularly for the construction of Amaravati though the state had been paying Rs 6,000 crore as taxes to the Centre. “Farmers in Amaravati have surrendered their land under pooling free of cost for construction of Amaravati but the Centre, whose responsibility it is to help the state construct Amravati has clammed up, he said. “The secretariat building would be more beautiful than the Google Office building,” he said and elaborated on his efforts to make the state drought free. Naidu said that the Centre is using its investigative agencies to raid the offices and residences of leaders of Telugu Desam Party whenever he raised his voice against it for the injustice being meted out to the state.
