Manikyala Rao Has His Way

The Union Government has sanctioned a NIT (National Institute of Technology) to AP and it will come up at Tadepalligudem in Andhra Pradesh.

Land has already been identified and allotted for the NIT. But at the last minute, a group of TDP leaders lobbied with Naidu to shift the NIT to Eluru.

So, when the Central team visited AP, on Naidu’s request, they went to Eluru to look at the alternate land proposed by the government.

When BJP MLA from Tadepalligudem, Manikyala Rao who is also the ‘Endowments Minister’ heard of this development, he immediately rushed to Delhi, met Amit Shah and lodged a complaint.

Amit Shah was angry at the last-minute change in plans and immediately conveyed this to Venkayya Naidu who in turn talked to Chandrababu.

The decision was taken not to shift the NIT to Eluru and the same was intimated to Amit Shah. Thus Manikyala Rao helped his constituency from not losing out on NIT.
