The Telangana leaders made it a habit of drawing a comparison between Andhra Pradesh and their state to show how the state is in a better place compared to others in terms of providing facilities to the people. While it was started by Telangana IT Minister KTR, many leaders are doing the same.

Days after Telangana Minister alleged that Andhra Pradesh government is installing the agricultural meters as the Centre assured the state of borrowings, another Minister joined the row.

Telangana finance Minister Harish Rao, who is known for his massy speeches shed light on the differences between the land prices in Telangana and Andhra Pradesh. He said that, people in Telangana are buying lands in Andhra Pradesh which used to be the opposite earlier.

If we look at the issue from a positive approach, the Minister highlighted how Andhra Pradesh missed on a big opportunity. When Amaravati was proposed as the capital region, the land rates went up skyrocketing and people from the divided Andhra Pradesh used to buy lands in Telangana.

The situation of Andhra Pradesh is not that good which is not a good sign. No one knows what the capital city is now. While the Andhra Pradesh High Court directed the government to develop Amaravati, the government is interested in having three capitals.

With the capital city issue, the land rates in Amaravati saw a massive decline and the proposed capital cities are yet to get a hike in the land rate. Simply, Andhra Pradesh is not in a position to see a boom in land rates.
