Konathala Demands AIIMS For Vizag 19-Sep-2017
He says Naidu concentrating only on Amaravati region. The repetition of the mistake of ‘capital-centric development’ in Amaravati would fuel movements for separation in other parts of the State. This was pointed out by Justice BN Sri Krishna Committee and later echoed by the Sivaramakrishnan Committee, former Minister Konathala Ramakrishna has said. Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu, who had admitted his ‘Hyderabad mistake’ and promised decentralized development in all 13 districts of the State, was now concentrating only on Amaravati region, ignoring other regions of the State, Mr. Ramakrishna told the media here on Monday. The TDP 2014 election manifesto also promised all round development of the State. The people of Visakhapatnam had not asked for the capital, though the city has all advantages. But, the backward districts of Srikakulam, Vizianagaram and Visakhapatnam, which comprise North Andhra, have been denied their due even after three years of the new government coming to power. Mr. Ramakrishna said the 400-bed Visakha Institute of Medical Sciences (VIMS), set up during the late Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy government, was functioning only partially with the beds lying unused for the past five years. He demanded converting VIMS into the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) as the proposed AIIMS in Guntur was ‘fat-fetched’ as there is nothing but an empty land parcel, surrounded by a compound wall. The government could have easily opted for...

AU may get n-reactor 25-Apr-2017
Discussions are on with an American firm, says V-C Andhra University is likely to get a prototype ‘sub-critical nuclear reactor’ or ‘clean nuclear reactor’ for its researchers in the department of nuclear physics and chemistry. According to the Vice-Chancellor of the university G. Nageswara Rao, discussions are on with an American firm and government for installing the reactor in AU. Unique technology “The reactor can provide real-time exposure to the students as well as researchers of the nuclear physics and chemistry departments of the varsity. No other nuclear facility in India posses this unique technology-contained reactors,” said Prof. Nageswara Rao. Sources say that AU had almost clinched the deal but was put on hold, as the government wanted the reactor to be installed at Mori smart village in East Godavari district. The reactor reportedly can produce 5 MW of electricity, which is sufficient to light about 10 villages. Explaining the technicalities, a professor at the nuclear physics department said that a subcritical nuclear reactor is a device where the nuclear-fission chain reaction is initiated and maintained using an external continuous neutron source, whereas the conventional reactors will keep on releasing energy as long as there is a critical mass of fuel. “When the supply of neutrons is stopped, the sub-critical reactor is immediately shut down. The energy is induced by fission reactions for which the neutrons are needed. The ‘subcri...

Naidu meets Shah, discusses increase in Assembly seats Senior Telangana Telugu Desam Party (TTDP) leader and party’s politburo member Mothukupalli Narasimhulu is likely to be named as Governor by the Narendra Modi Government in the next few days. Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu has been lobbying for his appointment as Governor for several months now. On Monday Mr. Naidu, who was in New Delhi to participate in the NDA meeting presided over by the Prime Minister, called on the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) president Amit Shah and discussed, among other things, his desire to see his party leader as Governor of some State. According to a senior TDP functionary, Mr. Narasimhulu, who was also in New Delhi, subsequently joined Mr. Naidu at the meeting with the BJP president. Union Urban Development Minister M. Venkaiah Naidu reportedly told him that he was hopeful of a favourable decision soon by the Prime Minister. Mr. Narasimhulu has been associated with the TDP from the days of party founder N.T. Rama Rao and has been a Minister at the State level. Mr. Naidu had promised the Telangana leader a seat in the Rajya Sabha. However, it did not materialise due to poor show of TDP in 2014 general elections. BJP has an electoral alliance with the TDP.
