The idea mooted by the government to have eight to 10 Tier II and III cities in Seemandhra as “specialised mini capitals” is quite original in thought (Feb.28). If implemented efficiently and honestly, it will definitely help in the balanced growth of the State and open the doors to numerous opportunities and shape dreams.
The development and future of the residual Andhra Pradesh depends on a committed leadership with clear vision and a strong sense of responsibility. In the absence of good leadership, all blueprints and fancy plans will sink without a trace. Development in the hands of present-day and conventional political parties is a risk. A new party with a strong and fresh leadership is the need of the hour. The government should also think of a new model for the region with more popular participation outside a political model.
