Jagan To Shift AP Capital To Tadepalli?

As per reliable sources, Andhra Pradesh's new capital would shift from Amaravati to Tadepalli. Though Tadepalli is also in Guntur district, the capital region is likely to be shifted there which is 40 kms from the current capital Amaravati.

Jagan's administration has been raising strong objection to Amaravati as capital citing that it is in flood region. Municipal Administration Minister Botsa Satyanarayana has openly raised his concerns for continuing Amaravati as capital and even announced the appointment of an Experts Committee to find alternative capital region.

Amidst this, YCP sources confirmed that Jagan would choose Tadepalli as the capital. Jagan's own residence is in Tadepalli. Tadepalli is close to Vijayawada compared to Amaravati and this could also help develop both the cities as twin cities.

However, Jagan administration had claimed that Experts Committee would meet the people and consider the opinions of people before recommending new capital. The cancellation of Amaravati Capital City Start-up Area project, which was proposed to be executed by Singapore Consortium, has added fuel to the ongoing speculations that capital would be shifted from Amaravati.

While a few other names like Prakasam are also being heard, it is learnt that Jagan would vote for Tadepalli. However, the future of farmers in Amaravati Capital Region who had voluntarily offered around 33,000 acres of land for the development of project is hanging in balance. One has to wait and see what is in store for Amaravati.
