    Chief Minister’s visit to Delhi put on hold

    Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu’s visit to New Delhi on Monday has been put on hold.

    According to information, Mr. Naidu is scheduled to visit New Delhi to take part in a programme pertaining to Amrita University.

    While officials said that “they have no idea,” a few MPs said that the tour was yet to be finalised.

    Officials in A.P. Bhavan also did not receive any information about the Chief Minister’s visit. There was speculation that Mr. Naidu would meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi after participating in the Amrita University programme.

    Telugu Desam leaders were of the view that foundation stone for the university should be laid in Amaravati rather than doing it remotely from New Delhi. Mr. Modi was scheduled to take part in the launching programme.

    The government allotted land to the university, run by Mata Amritanandamayi Trust, at Amaravati to set up a world-class medical university. The Trust will also set up a 2,250-bed “multi super speciality” hospital, and research and healthcare complex.

    Representatives of Mata Amritanandamayi Institute of Medical Sciences met Mr. Naidu to discuss the proposals in February this year. Subsequently, the government allotted land to the institution.

    Amrita University is one of the institutions that was cleared by the Cabinet. Indo-UK Health Institute, National Institute of Design, Central Institute of Tool Design, and AP HRD Institute are the other institutions to have got the government’s nod.

    The State Cabinet on Tuesday approved a proposal to allot 200 acres to Amrita University in two phases in Amaravati. In phase-I, the AP Capital Region Development Authority will allot 150 acres and 50 acres in phase-II. The Cabinet also approved allotment of 11 acres to the Reserve Bank.

The State government would give a guarantee for the loan, they said.

    The Andhra Pradesh Township and Infrastructure Development Corporation (APTSIDCO) would construct 1.20 lakh houses as against 1.93 lakh houses sanctioned by the Central government. The rest would be constructed by the AP Housing Corporation.

    The government proposed to set up an International Agriculture Development Fund to mitigate drought in the four districts of the Rayalaseema region. As much as Rs.1149 crore were required for it. The government would take up the project under externally aided projects (EAP). It would benefit 1.65 lakh farmers. The Agriculture University and students would be involved in it. The Central government would repay the EAP assistance, they said.

    The Cabinet cleared a proposal to acquire private properties in Visakhapatnam under the Land Pooling Scheme (LPS) 2016. The Indian Oil Corporation (IOC) would set up an LPG bottling plant at APSEZ at Achyutapuram in Visakhapatnam. It would have to pay Rs. 40 lakh per acre.

    Amrita University awaiting nod for Amaravati campus

    The establishment of educational institutions of international repute in Amaravati is gaining momentum with universities like the Amrita, VIT and the SRM committing to setting up their campuses in the emerging capital city in the next couple of years.

    The VIT University has already invited applications for admissions to its engineering courses at its Amaravati campus while the Amrita University, which comprises more than 60 institutions spread across Kerala, Tamil Nadu and Karnataka, is raring to foray into Amaravati with the Andhra Pradesh government making an in-principle allotment of 200 acres. The SRM University has also been allotted 200 acres in the capital city.

    Swami Amritaswarupananda Puri, president of the Amrita (Vishwa Vidyapeetham) University and chief disciple of Mata Amritanandamayi, told media persons here on Monday that a proposal to establish campus in Amaravati was under the consideration of the Andhra Pradesh government.

    “We are prepared to take up the prestigious project as and when the government issues necessary clearances.

    “It will be implemented in a phased manner and comprise courses across the spectrum, engineering to medical and arts and sciences,” he said.


    Meanwhile, according to reliable sources, the foundation for the campus at Amaravati is likely to be laid in February and Mata Amritanandamayi is expected to be present for the event as per Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu’s wish.

    Representatives of the Amrita University are scheduled to meet the Chief Minister in a few days to give a final shape to its proposals for Amaravati.
