CM Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy

On Tuesday, Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy announced that Visakhapatnam would become the state’s new capital in the coming months. The YSR Congress chief’s remarks came as the Supreme Court was hearing the case of developing Amravati as the state capital of South India.

The decision to choose a new capital for Andhra comes nine years after the state of Telangana was carved off from its territory and given Hyderabad as its capital.

CM Reddy invited investors and industrialists to Vishakhapatnam, where the global investment summit is scheduled for March 3 and 4, this year, during a speech at a global investors conference in Delhi. He also stated that he would be relocating to Visakhapatnam in the coming months.

The capital of Andhra Pradesh has always been the talk of the town. Earlier in 2015, the then Chief Minister of state Chandrababu Naidu said Amaravati would be the capital but, five years later, a proposal to have three capital cities was floated.

Under that scheme, Visakhapatnam and Kurnool would join Amaravati; the latter would be the legislative centre of power, Kurnool the judicial capital, and Visakhapatnam the executive capital of Andhra Pradesh. However, in March 2022, the court ruled against the plan to have three capitals and told the government to develop Amravati.

CM Reddy had also told the officials to find space for residences and offices for all to start from Vishakhapatnam.
