BJP still bats for Amaravati, states its State president Somu Veerraju.
While stating that it was not suitable for his celebration to comment on the Guv’s nod for the Decentralisation and Inclusive Advancement of All Regions and CRDA Repeal Bills, BJP State president Somu Veerraju encouraged all political parties to consider it and preserved that the decision to establish ‘3 capital cities’ was taken by the State federal government.
He recalled that the Central federal government had made it amply clear in the Lok Sabha that the capital problem was outside the jurisdiction of the Ministry of House Affairs.
Attending to media persons along with Rajya Sabha member G.V.L. Narasimha Rao and State celebration affairs in-charge Sunil Deodhar in New Delhi on Friday, Mr. Veerraju said the Guv took his decision on the Bills within the purview of his constitutional powers and on the basis of specialist recommendations.
‘ Clear line of separation’
He asserted there was a clear line that demarcates the powers of the Central and the State federal governments in the federal set-up, seeking to validate the Centre’s stand which has been not to intervene in the matter of 3 capitals of AP.
At the same time, the BJP was of the thought about opinion that Amaravati ought to continue to be the capital and the principal seat of the High Court shifted to Kurnool.
Mr. Veerraju claimed that the BJP was still supporting the farmers’ agitation in Amaravati and demanded that justice be done to them.
