Amaravati, the declared capital of the sunrise state Andhra Pradesh is now tangled in the existential crisis. Besides being an administrative capital, Amaravati was also touted to be an economic & job-creating hub and a tourism centre. And now, is the blame game between the ruling and the opposition parties hindering the dream of an emerging global city?
Right from the speculations around capital shift and halting the on-going projects to major banks withdrawing the funds has pushed the state’s capital into a threat. Recent turmoil around shifting the High court added fuel to the turbulence. On this note, YSRCP MLA Bugganna Rajendranath Reddy has dropped another bombshell of sorts hinting the shift of Andhra Pradesh High Court to Rayalaseema. In a media meet at Kadapa, the finance minister has apparently confirmed that the AP High Court will be shifted from the present capital city to Rayalaseema. “Decentralisation will be the right move at this point as centralised administration may create problems and hinder the holistic development. We are serious over High Court displacement and the state government will soon take a decision on it,” he said. If this is believed to happen, then according to a few political analysts Kadapa would be the first choice of the government and then comes Tirupati.
