The Centre which has already made it clear that it would not interfere into the location of the Capital and its shifting had once again come clean on the issue, saying it was not against the trifurcation too.
The Centre had filed two affidavits relating to the Capital issue in the AP High Court stating that it would not get into the way of the state with regard to the decision on capital.
This morning, it filed another affidavit in the HC stating that there was nothing wrong in having three capitals, as per the AP Re-organisation Act.
It said that there was no mention stating that AP should have only one capital in the Act. The Home Ministry made it clear that the petitioner Sambasiva Rao’s argument on three capitals was just a illusion.
The Act only mentioned that the Centre would help the state financially in setting up the capital, the affidavit said.
The Centre, in the affidavit, said that they would not interfere into the capital or capitals issue in the future. Farmers of Amaravati Capital region have been on the protest mode for more than 200 days expressing their resentment over shifting of the capital to Vizag.
