Former Bharatiya Janata Party MP from Narasapuram Gokaraju Gangaraju on Wednesday said he had no objection if the Jagan Mohan Reddy government demolished his guest house constructed on the banks of Krishna river at Vundavalli.
He, however, said the government should not go selectively in the demolitions but raze all the constructions on the Krishna river banks.
“There are several residential complexes, guest houses, nature cure hospitals, orphanages and even the buildings constructed by the Tourism department. Will the government demolish all of them?” he asked.
Stating that he had replied to the notices given by the CRDA authorities, Gangaraju said his guest house was constructed 17 years ago after obtaining permissions.
“The authorities then told me that I could construct the guest house 30 metres away from the river. It was not on the river bank,” he pointed out.
He said he had given lands to several institutions involved in social service.
“I have not got any favours from any government. My intention was not to damage Krishna river at all. But I felt constructing a guest house near Krishna river will bring him good fortune,” he said.
