Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Jagan’s proposal of decentralising development with three state capitals Amaravati, Visakhapatnam and Kurnool has been receiving divide response from the public. Speaking on the capital city issue in the winter sessions of the state assembly, Jagan-led government proposed that Visakhapatnam would be the executive capital, Amaravati a legislative capital and Kurnool will be the judicial capital of the state. This statement drew traction from across the state joined by the opposition who started protesting against the move.
On this note, Lok Satta chief Jayaprakash Narayan commented on Jagan’s decision. Backing up Jagan-led government’s decision, the senior bureaucrat opined that this move can help the governance to distribute the development. He then reiterated the need to decentralised the development though the decision received friction from a certain section of the citizen. He suggested the government to continue Amaravati as the centre for the administration besides developing the remaining two capital regions at Visakhapatnam and Kurnool.
