5 minutes enough to stop ‘Amaravati farmers padayatra’: Botcha
Visakhapatnam, September 26: The government decided to set up capital in Visakhapatnam with the aim of developing north Andhra, stated Minister Botcha Satyanarayana. “It’s only five minutes work to stop padayatra and to do danda yatra. But we respect the system and keeping quite to protect law and order situation,” he added.
He questioned the leaders, who are opposing three capitals, as to what’s their problem if Vizag is made as administrative capital. He said that the people of this area had ate rice after late NT Rama Rao became the CM. ‘Former CM YS Rajasekahara Reddy’s decisions and employment guarantee scheme in 2004 have stopped migrations.

The Minister said that Visakhapatnam will become more developed than Mumbai if Rs 5,000 to Rs 10,000 crores is invested. “I have been in power for the past 25 years. If I wanted, half of the Vizag will be in our pockets. But as a Minister I wanted all-round development. We are committed to develop north Andhra,” Minister Botcha stressed.
