Vishakhapatnam is the new capital for Andhra Pradesh
Hyderabad: There has been a change in the capital of Andhra Pradesh. Now Visakhapatnam will be known as the new capital of this South Indian state. Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy made this announcement on Tuesday. Along with this, he has also announced the organization of Global Investor Summit in the new capital.
According to the video posted by CM Reddy’s official Twitter handle, he said, ‘I invite you to Visakhapatnam, which is going to become our capital in the coming days. I am also shifting to Visakhapatnam in coming few months. We are going to organize this summit in Visakhapatnam on 3rd and 4th March….
The special thing is that the Andhra Pradesh government has taken this decision after 9 years of separation from Telangana. Amaravati was declared the capital of Andhra Pradesh on 23 April 2015. After this, in the year 2020, three capitals of the state were planned. These include the names of Amaravati, Visakhapatnam and Kurnool. However, it was later withdrawn and Amravati remained the capital.
Land scam in Amravati!
Andhra Pradesh’s ruling party YSR Congress has accused Telugu Desam Party leader N Chandrababu Naidu of former chief minister of the state in an alleged land scam. Amravati was the center in this matter also. Reddy’s party had also demanded a CBI inquiry into the matter. However, Naidu continued to deny it.
