CM Jaganmohan Reddy reaffirms his plan to move the capital to Vizag soon

Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy said the State capital would be shifted to Visakhapatnam. Reddy said this at a meeting in preparation for the Global Investors Summit, which the state government is organising in Visakhapatnam in March. He said that Vizag “is going to be our capital in the days to come. I would also be shifting over to Visakhapatnam in the months to come as well.”


The present capital of Andhra Pradesh is Amaravati.


In November last year, Jagan Mohan Reddy government repealed the controversial AP Decentralisation and Inclusive Development of All Regions Act, 2020 intended to establish three capitals for the State.


The State government had proposed three capitals, Visakhapatnam (Executive capital), Amaravati (Legislative capital) and Kurnool (Judicial capital).


Jagan further said the State Government is organising the Global Investors Summit in Visakhapatnam on March 3 and 4 and requested the corporate community to take part in the meet and invest in the State.


However, the opposition TDP said the CM's “sudden remarks on the capital again now when the matter is pending in the Supreme Court are to divert the public attention from the CBI investigation in Vivekananda Reddy murder case.”
