Amaravati: The state cabinet has finalised the tower design for the assembly complex. Two designs submitted by the UK-based architects, Norman Fosters were discussed during the cabinet meeting. The approved design suggests the erection of the tower atop the assembly complex.
Chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu said that they should go for this tower design as many people have voted for it on social media. With this progress at work, the chief minister asked the APCRDA to chalk out plans for the foundation and subsequent works at the earliest.
However, CM Naidu said to have taken a long time in finalising the design as he is keeping his fingers crossed to make Amaravati one of the best capitals in the world.
The chief minister briefed the cabinet about his meeting with Union minister Nitin Gadkari on the Polavaram impasse. He said that the Union minister has asked from him one month time for the contractor, Transtroy, to add pace to the Polavaram project.
Gadkari reportedly asked the chief minister to postpone the fresh tenders floated for the execution of the work, which had been taken away from Transtroy.
Naidu told the cabinet about the financial and political compulsions, under which the government has been reeling to execute the project. He sounded confident while saying that the issues pertaining to the project would be resolved once the Union minister pays a visit to Polavaram on December 23.
The chief minister advised members in cabinet, including party leaders that they should not resort in haste to flaying the Centre or BJP leaders.
Tower design has been selected as many people voted for it on social media. Naidu asked APCRDA to chalk out plans for the foundation and subsequent works at the earliest.
