Yesterday, Sujana Chowdary who left TDP to join in BJP a few months back said the central government will take the final call on the capital of Andhra Pradesh. He said that the state government cannot take independent decisions on the capital.
Interestingly enough, BJP high command seems to be furious with Sujana Chowdary for his comments and gave a strong counter to him.
“Sujana Chowdary said the central government will decide the capital of Andhra Pradesh. These comments do not reflect the party’s interests. Our Andhra Pradesh wing president Somu Veerraju made affirmative statements in this regard. The central government will not decide on Amaravati or any other capital,” an official statement from BJP Andhra Pradesh wing read.
Somu Veerraju had already made it clear that the BJP supports power decentralisation proposal made by the YCP government.
Sujana Chowdary has been irking BJP high command with his recent political activities. It remains to be seen in the saffron party high command will take any action against him.
బిజెపి రాజ్యసభసభ్యులు శ్రీ @yschowdary గారు చెప్పినట్టు రాజధాని విషయం కేంద్ర ప్రభుత్వ పరిధిలో ఉంది అనటం పార్టీ యొక్క అభిప్రాయం కాదు.
