Chief minister YS Jaganmohan Reddy has directed officials of Capital Region Development Authority (CRDA) to ready the action plan to resume work on the important structures in the capital city area.
He reviewed the status of projects planned in Amaravati with municipal administration minister Botcha Satyanarayana and senior officials at the camp office on Monday.
All the projects in the capital city were kept in abeyance since the YSRC took over the reins of the state a year ago. The state government had appointed separate committees to look into the allegations of irregularities in the awarding of tenders and questions of feasibility of such projects.
The state government had also appointed a Group of Ministers (GoM) to study and suggest the projects required for Amaravati.
The previous TDP government, which planned many projects, had already launched several of them, including the quarters of All India Service officers, gazzetted officers and NGOs.
Similarly, work on the permanent secretariat had also started. The bungalows of High Court judges were also not completed due to the financial constraints.
All these projects were stalled with a view to take a close look into their need and feasibility according to the financial condition of the state. The GoM, experts committee comprising retired engineers and CRDA have already submitted their reports to the chief minister. Subsequently, the decision on re-launching the projects was kept on hold due to the paucity of funds.
Sources said that the chief minister has reportedly asked CRDA to focus on developmental work in Mangalagiri and Tadepalle along with resuming some of the stalled projects in Amaravati. They said projects which are almost 70% done are expected to be resumed first. “The chief minister has directed the officials to ready an action plan to resume some of the work. Our officials are on the job,” municipal administration minister Botcha Satyanarayana told TOI.
