While Andhra Pradesh is all set to build the first phase of its capital near Tullur and Mangalgiri, former minister and TDP senior leader from Kurnool raised a fresh demand. TG Venkatesh has demanded the state government to announce “Summer” and “Winter” capitals for Seemandhra. TG Venkatesh asked government to set up one capital in Rayalaseema and anotehr capital in North Coastal Andhra Pradesh. Venkatesh stated, “Declare summer and winter capitals for Seemandhra in Rayalaseema and North Coastal Andhra respectively. Else, Seemandhra would be divided into three states.” Interestingly, TG Venkatesh also demanded one more capital for Telangana apart from existing Hyderabad.
Meanwhile, TG Venkatesh lashed out at KCR for his comments against Chandrababu Naidu. Sharply reacting to KCR’s Vijayawada trip, TG Venkatesh courted a controversy by saying, “We’ll skin him (KCR) alive if he dares to step in Vijayawada.”
