The twist and turns regarding the next capital of residuary Andhra Pradesh state is nothing short of a thriller with Telugu people waiting with anxiety as to which will be their capital. So far, it was believed that the region between Vijayawada- Guntur will become capital.
There are media reports that TDP boss and AP CM Chandrababu Naidu along with the consent of Sivaramakrishanan committee appointed by the centre has reportedly submitted a denotification request of forest land to centre.
If this is true, then the request made for denotifying 15,000 acres of forest land between Nujivedu to Hanuman Junction may be getting ready to house the next capital of AP. It has to be seen how the environmental authorities are going to respond to it.
Sources say that senior BJP leader and union minister Venkaiah Naidu is lobbying hard at the centre for getting this proposal okayed which also includes a tri city plan comprising Vijayawada-Eluru and Guntur. The coming days will give clarity on this.
