He mentioned that a committee would be formed to examine the current situation of Amaravati, which would take two to three months to deliver its report.

Narayana recalled that during its previous tenure, the TDP spent Rs. 9000 crores on building highways in Amaravati.

He noted that 70-80% of the construction work on quarters for IAS officers, MLAs, and MPs was completed during the TDP’s tenure but stalled during YCP’s rule.

He said that the construction of these buildings would be finished in the next six to eight months. He also mentioned that a perfect plan for Amaravati’s development would be ready in 10 days.
