Jana Sena Corporator Raises Concerns over Chief Minister’s Office Allegedly Shifting to Vizag
P. Murthy Yadav, a Jana Sena party corporator, has voiced worries about the Andhra Pradesh state government’s attempt to move the capital to Visakhapatnam. He believes they are doing this by disguising it as regional development, which he says goes against a court order.
Yadav suggests that the Chief Minister’s new office is going to be at Rushikonda resort. He claims that the government is spending a significant ₹300 crore to rebuild the resort under the guise of creating the CM’s camp office. To make this happen, they reportedly tore down the previous Haritha resort, which was less than 15 years old.
In addition to this, Yadav has gone to the Andhra Pradesh High Court and the National Green Tribunal to raise concerns about the harm caused to Rushikonda hill’s ecology. According to him, the government destroyed about 20 acres of greenery and conducted extensive excavations beyond what they were allowed by the authorities, which, he says, violates Coastal Regulation Zone (CRZ) rules.
The 22nd ward corporator also alleges that the government is not following the court’s decisions, which raises more questions about the legality of their actions.
