Set up National Forensic Sciences University in Tirupati, will allot land: Jagan to Amit Shah

Amaravati: Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Y.S Jagan Mohan Reddy met Union minister Amit Shah in New Delhi on Thursday and requested him to consider setting up of the National Forensic Sciences University (NFSU) in Tirupati.

The Chief Minister, who also reiterated the issues raised before Prime Minister Narendra Modi and environment minister Bhupender Yadav, said the setting up of the NFSU campus in the state will cater to the growing requirement of forensic experts in south India. He assured the Union minister that his government will allot the required land.

He further explained that Tirupati has grown into an educational hub and the setting up of NFSU would serve the demands of the growing need for criminal investigation infrastructure.

The CM urged the Home minister to work towards releasing the pending arrears of Rs. 32,625.25 crores, which includes resource funding of Rs. 18,330.45 crores for the fiscal year 2014-15 and pension arrears and reimbursement of Rs. 2,937.92 crores spent by the state government on the Polavaram Project from its own coffers so far, and resolving other pending post-bifurcation issues between AP and Telangana. Jagan also sought Mr. Shah's intervention in collecting arrears of Rs. 6,886 crores outstanding from Telangana Discoms to APGENCO.

The Chief Minister further requested the minister to fix the Polavaram Project cost at Rs. 55,548 crores as recommended by the project's Technical Advisory Committee. He asked him to do away with the policy of treating the project cost component-wise as it escalates the cost besides delaying the project.

Jagan also urged the Home minister to intervene and restrain the Telangana government from acting unilaterally and violating operational procedures in drawing Krishna river water and generating electricity and grant environmental clearances for the Rayalaseema Lift Irrigation Scheme (RLS) through which 3 TMC water per day can be supplied to TGP, SRBC, and GNSS.
