Naidu Favoured Adani In Airport Deal!

Telugu Desam Party president and Andhra Pradesh chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu’s unusual interest in favouring a private party than a government entity in building the Bhogapuram international airport led to severe criticism.

Last year, when the Naidu government floated tenders for the airport project, the Airport Authority of India bagged the bid as it offered 38 per cent return on investment to the government.

However, a few months ago, the government suddenly cancelled the contract disqualifying the AAI from the contest showing strange reasons.

A report in an economic daily newspaper indicated the AAI authorities wrote a letter to Naidu asking reasons for its rejection. They even threatened to move the court questioning the arbitrary decision of the Naidu government.
