I see Amravati emerging as a world class 'green' global city: Chandrababu Naidu

ANI  |  Amravati (Andhra Pradesh) [India] 

Chief Minister Nara has predicted that he sees state capital Amravati emerging as a world class global city in the not too distant future.

"We have got Rs. 2,500 crore and will get more amount, approximately Rs. 1,000 crore, soon for transforming Amravati into a world class global city," Naidu told ANI in an exclusive interview.

Citing Hyderabad's example, Naidu said he had developed the city with passion.

"I developed with passion. I focused and developed it with transparency. I have sentiment for it, but people have given me more responsibility and God has blessed me to develop one more city. Now, I am going to develop Amravati as a green capital city, and naturally, it will be a better city. It will be the best in the world," he said.

Reportedly, last month, the Government had inked an agreement with the Government of Singapore for developing 6.84 kilometres as a startup area in Amravati.

The Legislative Assembly passed a resolution in 2014 to establish a green field capital city as a liveable, environmentally sustainable people's capital on the banks of the River Krishna between Vijayawada and Guntur.

The identified capital city area is centrally located from both ends with good connectivity.

For planning, coordination, execution, promoting and securing the planned development of the capital region, the state government constituted the Andhra Pradesh Capital Region Development Authority (APCRDA) in 2014.

The chairman of the authority is Chief Minister Naidu and the vice-chairman is Minister for Municipal Administration and Urban Development Dr. P. Narayana.
