Somu Veerraju differs with Sujana Chowdary
clarifies that Capital issue is not in center’s purview
Sujana Chowdary, who joined BJP recently seems to express his personnel views on behalf of BJP but frequently he is being differed by the senior BJP leaders like Ram Madhav and Sunil Deodhar, incharge of AP BJP wing. Recently the newly elected BJP president Somu Veerraju also clearly differed with Sujana. Sujana has been trying to decentralization bills of Andhrapradesh and he is opposing the setting of administrative capital at Vizag. He many times state that center would intervene and stop the shifting of capital to Vizag. He himself has been speaking in his own and trying to convince that he is speaking on behalf of BJP. But previously Ram Madhav and Deodhar also condemned his statements and they clarified that setting up capital is purely the state’s issue and the union government wont involve in it.
In a fresh, jolt, SujanaChowdhary received a major blow by Somu Veerraju too. Sujana Chowdhary said it was unconstitutional for the Andhra Pradesh government to send the capital decentralization bill to the governor. He said that according to Article 254, the governor has no option to approve the bill unless it is reported to the center. "It is not right to increase capitals," Sujana opined. Sujana was of the opinion that no decision should be taken unconstitutionally without sending the bills for judicial review. He said it was unconstitutional to send the capital bill to the governor without the council approving it. The Rajya Sabha member asserted that the centre would make the final decision on the issue of state capital as per the constitution and recalled that the Survey of India had also identified Amaravati as the best place for capital. However, the Andhra Pradesh BJP made an interesting tweet on these comments made by Sujana. The state president SomuVeerraju tweeted that BJP MP SujanaChowdhary's remarks that the issue of capital is within the purview of the central government is not true and contrary to party policy.
