Chandrababu Naidu Proclaims Amaravati as Andhra Pradesh's Capital City

Chandrababu Naidu, the supremo of TDP, announced on Tuesday that Amaravati will be the sole capital city of Andhra Pradesh, a day before his swearing-in as the state's chief minister. This decision was made during a joint meeting of TDP, BJP, and Janasena legislators, where Naidu was unanimously elected as the NDA leader in the Andhra Pradesh Legislative Assembly.

"In our government, there will be no games under the guise of three capitals. Our capital is Amaravati. Amaravati is the capital," Naidu asserted.

As the first chief minister of bifurcated Andhra Pradesh from 2014 to 2019, Naidu had initially proposed Amaravati as the capital city. However, his vision faced a setback in 2019 when the TDP lost power and Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy's YSRCP secured a sweeping victory.

Reddy had dismissed the Amaravati capital city plans and introduced the concept of three capitals, which Naidu has now replaced with the decision to have a single capital.

The NDA alliance, comprising TDP, BJP, and Janasena, achieved a resounding victory in the recently concluded simultaneous Lok Sabha and assembly elections in the state, securing a commanding majority of 164 assembly seats and 21 Lok Sabha seats. This triumph has injected new momentum into the Amaravati capital city project.
