For the better part of this week, BJP Rajya Sabha MP YS Chowdary (referred to in Andhra Pradesh as Sujana Chowdary because of his Sujana group of industries) has been accused of owning land in and around the Amaravati capital region by the YSR Congress party. The Sakshi newspaper, owned by chief minister Jaganmohan Reddy’s family, even published detailed survey numbers of plots they alleged belonged to Chowdary’s family.
Speaking exclusively to Filter Kaapi, Chowdary claimed he had not purchased any land in that part of Andhra Pradesh since 2012. In Part One of this interview, he opened up on Amaravati, why he supports retaining the capital at the same place, about why Chandrababu Naidu failed to build the capital and more.
