Andhra Pradesh’s new assembly to be taller than Statue of Unity

The proposed Andhra Pradesh assembly building in Amaravati is tipped to be taller than the Statue of Unity by 68 metres.

The assembly building will have three floors and a 250-metre-high tower making it taller than the 182-metre Statue of Unity in Gujarat.

Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu has reportedly almost finalised the design by Foster & Partners in the United Kingdom.

Minister for Municipal Administration P Narayana said the proposed structure will be shaped like an upside-down lily. The government will call for tenders for the construction of the building by end of November. Narayana said the building will be cyclone and earthquake-proof.
