From the time AP CM Jagan announced in state Assembly that the state will have three capitals, one each for Legislature, Executive and Judiciary many suggestions came from leaders and public on capital.



Soon after Jagan's hint on having three capitals in the inauguration of the YSR Arogyasri scheme. Ex-Minister Amarnath Reddy came up with a new proposal that shock leaders and political circles as well.

He said that if the government would not declare Tirupati as the capital city, the Chittor district should be merged with neighbor state Tamil Nadu as the Rayalaseema people are in no mood to be a part of Andhra Pradesh.

The Ex-minister recently held a press conference to share his views and suggestions son capital city. "People from Seema agreed when the then Chief Minister Mr. Nara Chandrababu Naidu announced Amaravati as capital city in 2014 as it has equal distance to all the parts of the state. We can't digest the shifting of capital city to Visakhapatnam. The decision leads more damage to the people of Rayalaseema. It is better to divide from AP than having capital city at Visakhapatnam," Mr. Reddy said.

"During the bifurcation of Andhra Pradesh, the people from Rayalaseema raised their demand that Tirupati should be capital city," he added.
