Andhra Pradesh’s new capital to be located in Vijayawada region: Naidu

NEW DELHI (TIP): Andhra Pradesh’s new capital will be located in Vijayawada region, chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu announced in the state assembly on September 4. Naidu told the assembly that the government has decided to “locate the capital at central place of the state around Vijayawada”.

Naidu said the decision was taken in the state cabinet meeting on September 1. Naidu had deferred plans to announce decision on state’s new capital for Thursday, as he was advised that Tuesday is not an auspicious day for the announcement, according to reports. Tension was palpable in the joint capital Hyderabad, with the AP chief minister convening an emergency meeting late on Wednesday to evolve a strategy to tackle the opposition in the House once his announcement was made. In the meeting, Naidu told his ministers not to express any opinion on the choice of the capital on their own.
