Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu has asserted that the government will start functioning from the temporary capital from June 15 onwards. After laying the stone for the temporary capital on Wednesday, he reacted bitterly to the criticism by the opposition parties on the temporary capital. Mr. Naidu said that some political parties were making baseless allegations that the government was misusing funds for constructing of temporary capital. It was a misnomer that it was a temporary structure and would be dismantled soon after completion of permanent buildings.
The Interim Government Complex was being constructed in the multi-purpose area in the master plan. The CRDA would use it for commercial or any other best suited purpose. “The government intends to make the temporary capital building as a historical structure. Future generations should visit it to know the history," he said.
Some people were trying to create hurdles. It was unfortunate that they were raking up regional, caste, and religious passions for their vested interests. Mr. Naidu said that employees also agreed to relocate to the new capital. At least 15,000 houses were required for employees. The people of Krishna and Guntur districts were requested not to increase rents abnormally. They were requested to treat the employees properly and become partners in the history of making a capital.
