AP CM Chandrababu Naidu has summoned a cabinet meeting on September 1 to finalize the issue of state capital in the wake of the recommendations of the Shivaramakrishnan committee.

Reviewing the issue at his chambers in the assembly today Chandrababu Naidu advised all cabinet ministers to remain silent on issue of state capital and not to further make it complex. The cabinet will take a view on the Shivaramakrishna report and indicate its  acceptance or option to the center which will take a final call on the capital issue. 

According to Finance Minister Shivaramakrishna recommendations were only advisory and not mandatory for state government and center to accept it. ‘Final decision has to be taken by the elected government in consultation with the center. 

Agriculture minister Pratipati Pulla Rao said there was no confusion over the location of the state capital.  ‘Our CM has already taken a decision and if any complications by the Shivaramakrishna committee suggestions, Chandrababu Naidu will sort it out with Prime  Minister Modi’ he said.
