YSR Congress Party leader Jagan Mohan Reddy has alleged massive corruption in the construction work of Amaravati, the new capital of Andhra Pradesh, and claimed that even Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu was involved in the scam. Mr Naidu, he alleged, has brought large tracts of land through illegal deals at throwaway prices in Amaravati before the project was formally announced. The YSR Congress leader said he will launch an international probe into the project if his party came to power in the state. "Amaravati is filled with scams. He knew where capital was coming from, yet he misled people that it was coming from elsewhere. He himself bought land in Amaravati at throwaway prices, misleading people," Mr Reddy told NDTV. "He had his benamis (hidden deals) buy land. Six months later, he announced the capital in Amaravati," the YSR Congress leader said.
