The sudden decision of the World Bank to drop the proposal to lend United States $ 300 million (approximately Rs 2100 crore) for the infrastructure development in Amaravati, the capital city of Andhra Pradesh has surprised many.
The YSR Congress Party had alleged irregularities in land acquisition during its time in the Opposition.
He said former chief minister N. Chandrababu Naidu had been misleading the committee that was set up to look into the fraudulent PPAs because he was afraid of the review of the PPAs. It was considering extending a loan of $300 million to the Andhra government to build the capital city on the banks of river Krishna. They said that development of Amaravati will affect their livelihood and impact the environment.
He said that in the last three years, the state government had paid at least more than Rs 5,000 crore in excess to renewable power generators which was a loss to the exchequer.
Though it is a fact that the new government headed by YSR Congress party president Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy has not been evincing much interest in Amaravati project works, there was never any indication that the World Bank would withdraw its loan proposal. We may have to cancel some tenders and call for new ones in a transparent manner.
