In a startling revelation, TRS leader KT Rama Rao said his father and caretaker CM of Telangana K. Chandrasekhara Rao wanted to announce a gift of Rs. 100 crore for Amaravati, the new capital of Andhra Pradesh, during the foundation laying ceremony. “However, KCR stopped short after learning that Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who was also present at the event, was not going to ‘give a penny’ to the new city,” he added. At an event called ‘Mana Hyderabad – Mana Andari Hyderabad’, KTR explained further on KCR’s donation plans for Amaravati. “My father wanted to give Amaravati a gift of Rs. 100 crore and was all set to announce it even. When he walked onto the stage, he asked the PM’s Principal Secretary whether the PM was going to make a similar announcement, only to be answered in the negative. He was shocked, and he chose not to go ahead. God knows what would have happened if he did,” he said. In the same breath, he said that AP Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu had recently proposed that TRS and TDP come together to form a coalition. “But, I refused the proposal since both States have different interests and therefore coming together, that too after the cash-for-vote scam, was just not possible,” he said.
