Which Is The Capital Of Andhra Pradesh?
The Andhra Pradesh executive i.e. the government will work from Visakhapatnam and the state assembly will be in Amravati and the High Court will be in Kurnool. The opposition Telugu Desam Party rejected all the proposals for the amendment of this law. So, presently there will be 3 capital of Andhra Pradesh.
Eliminating the legislative hurdle in Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy's plan to create three capitals for Andhra Pradesh, Governor Vishwa Bhushan Harichandan on Friday called the Andhra Pradesh Decentralization and Inclusive Development of All Areas Bill, 2020 and Andhra Pradesh Capital Region Development Authority (Repeal) Bill 2020 gave its approval on Friday.
The state's law department immediately issued a gazette notification to give effect to the new Acts, but the government would have to overcome legal hurdles before turning its three capitals plan into reality. The issue is now pending in the Andhra Pradesh High Court.
Highly placed government sources said that it would take some more time to implement the plan of the three capitals despite the implementation of related laws. They said we are in no hurry. These two Bills were passed by the Legislative Assembly twice on 20 January and 16 June and were not passed by the Legislative Council where the TDP is in majority.
Highly placed official sources said that but the government sent the bills to the Governor for consent under Articles 197 (1) and (2) of the Constitution and after extensive legal consultation, they gave their consent for the new law. Explain that in the three capitals that are being talked about, there is a plan to make Visakhapatnam the executive capital Amravati the legislative capital, and Kurnool as the judicial capital.
