Followed by the flak received from both citizen and leaders of Andhra Pradesh, Centre on Friday added Andhra Pradesh capital Amaravati to the newly released map. Post the abrogation of Article 370, an official political map was issued by the Union Home Ministry to mark the newly created Union Territories Jammu & Kashmir and Ladakh. However, the map has shown Hyderabad as the common capital of Telangana and Andhra Pradesh which stirred up the hornet’s nest. Amidst Andhra Pradesh government constituting an expert panel to look into the people’s opinion on capital change, this has become a hot topic defaulting the centre’s stand on the capital change.
Minister of State Home Affairs Kishan Reddy took to Twitter to share: “Taking note of the issue of Amaravati missing from the map, raised by MPs of AP in the Parliament yesterday, I took up the matter with those concerned. The error has been rectified. Here is the revised map of India.” This has come hours after TDP MP Galla Jayadev has raised the issue in Parliament on Thursday complaining about non-inclusion of Amaravati in the recently released map. Jayadev thanked the minister for duly reverting back regarding the addressed issue.
