Amaravati: It is already known that AP Chief Minister inaugurated the Fourth Indian Open World Ranking Snooker tournament. The event is held at Novotel Vizag from September 12th through 16th.
It is good to see AP hosting big events and the CM also expressed hope that Amaravati too will soon be a venue for hosting many sporting events.
But what is catching attention here is that the landmark monument of erstwhile Andhra Pradesh Charminar being used for the event. Does AP not have something worthwhile in the likes of Charminar? Lepakshi Nandi ir Tirumala would have been a good alternative if not the Kurnool Kondareddy Fort or the Bheemi Beach but why Charminar when Telangana has separated ? Was it a mistake? This hurts sentiments of AP people, does it not?
