    GUNTUR: The first ever five-star hotel in the Capital region of Amaravati will soon come up in Guntur city. The works on the hotel would be formally launched on April 29 and Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu would be present at the ground-breaking ceremony.

    The hotel ‘My Fortune’ will come up in an area of 1.5 acres at Vidya Nagar. The hotel will have 150 rooms besides three restaurants and all other facilities like swimming pool, bar, gym and conference halls. The 12-storeyed facility would be built at a cost of Rs 150 crore and would be the tallest building in Guntur when it comes up.

    As of now, the ITC is running My Fortune five star Hotels in Bengaluru and Chennai. The hotel at Guntur would be their third and the first in the AP capital region.

    “Due to the lack of a five-star hotel in the city, the denizens are forced to go to Chennai, Bengalore and Hyderabad. We hope that our hotel will fill the vacuum. We expect the VIP inflow to grow exponentially as Guntur would be part of the capital area,” said ITC General Manager P Venkatram Reddy.

    He said that the works of the hotel will be completed within three years and will be declared open either by the end of 2018 or in the first quarter of 2019.

    Guntur to House ITC ABD Headquarters

    Meanwhile, the ITC also decided to set up its Agri Business Division (ABD) headquarters in Guntur city.

    Speaking to Express, ITC Chief Executive Officer Sanjiv Rangrass said that Guntur will be the hub for procurement of ITC products.

    “As part of the efforts aimed at reaching the target of Rs one lakh crore by 2030, we are focusing on Fast Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG) and zeroed in on Guntur to set up the ABD,” he said.

    Underscoring the need for minimising pesticide and fertilisers use in cultivation, he said the ITC had embarked on the mission of promoting Integrated Pest Management Techniques in association with the State Government.

    Online grievance portal for medicos soon, says Kamineni
    An online grievance portal is being developed for students of government medical colleges, said Minister for Health Kamineni Srinivas here on Saturday.

    The web portal would be made available for students shortly and would help them to submit their grievances online, Dr. Srinivas told reporters after laying the foundation for a Nursing College and Nursing Hostel in the premises of the Infectious Diseases (fever) hospital here.

    The Guntur Medical College has been roiled with protests by students demanding action against a professor, charged by the police in the suicide of a PG medical student, B. Sandhya Rani, on October 24. The senior professor of Gynecology V.V. Lakshmi has been evading arrest.


    “We will not tolerate any incidents of harassment on the medical college campuses. The State government is seriously looking into the case relating to suicide of Dr. Rani. Four special teams have been formed to track Dr. Lakshmi and we will definitely arrest her. Further, we are also stripping her husband, G. Vijaya Saradhi, of his existing position as vice chairman of AP Medical Council,” said the Health Minister.

    The Minister said a Mosquito Breeding Prevention Act would be brought in shortly to embolden civic bodies to bring in more effective measures to control mosquitoes.

    “This year, we had seen a marked increase in number of dengue cases but still, the incidences are fewer when compared to other States,” he said.

    SCR cancels Kacheguda-Guntur double-decker
    Faced with poor patronage, the South Central Railway (SCR) on Monday announced that it was cancelling from November 14 the two air-conditioned double-decker express trains that run from Kacheguda to Guntur and Tirupati.

    After making an announcement in the Railway Budget of 2014-15 and starting operations amid fanfare on May 13 and 14, 2014, respectively, train Nos. 22118/22117 between Kacheguda and Guntur and Nos. 22120/22119 to Tirupati and back stood cancelled, a press release said.

    From Day One of their introduction, passengers found the seats uncomfortable for the long journeys to Guntur and Tirupati and remaining very poor, occupancy ratio dipped to single digit.

    Following this scenario and after taking the opinion of people’s representatives and others in the Divisional Rail Users Consultative Committee, the SCR wrote to the Railway Board seeking permission to cancel these services.

    Accordingly, the services have been cancelled.

    VIJAYAWADA: With an objective to provide road connectivity to Amaravati from Guntur, Andhra Pradesh Capital Region Development Authority (APCRDA) and Roads and Buildings (R and B) department have decided to widen the road between Tadikonda and Thullur. A detailed project report (DPR) for the proposed project will be readied and execution of the same will begin soon, the officials said.

    According to information, the existing road will be extended till the E9 Road which is being developed in the capital region. “Guntur District Collector Kona Sasidhar proposed having a direct access to Amaravati from Guntur. He proposed that the existing Gorantla Road, which is a State Highway, towards the capital, be extended till the E9 Road. As it doesn’t need land acquisition, it would not burden the State exchequer,” a senior official explained.

    Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu, during the Collectors Conference held last month, agreed to the proposal and directed officials concerned to immediately work on it. About 25 km of the road would be widened into a four-lane one. “We will work with the R and B department to take the project forward,” the APCRDA official added. The road extension will help the commuters from Guntur, who travel to the capital via Mangalagiri now, to directly reach Amaravati, the official observed.

    The officials said that the availability of a direct access between the capital will give an impetus to Guntur’s development. The APCRDA and R and B are also working on the development of other roads leading to the capital in Guntur district. “A blue print has already been prepared. The works will be taken up in a phased manner,” another official said.
