AP CM Chandra Babu Naidu prestigiously announced the Vijayawada as new capital. Even though he managed to avoid severe opposition in the beginning day, now slowly opposition against the capital has started erupting in Rayalaseema and even in some parts of East Andhra. People of Rayalaseema have been opposing the Vijayawada as capital for AP since the speculation over it, as they lambasted the governments saying they had ignored the development of their region over decades.
Now finally Capital issue is likely to hit a legal chaos as the defense societies of East Andhra have announced to file a case against this decision by Chandra Babu in the Supreme Court. They said that the decision over capital is against the suggestions cited by the Shivaramakrishnan committee which strictly said that Vijayawada couldn’t be used as the capital for the state.
But however, there is also speculation that the courts ignore these type petitions and the bifurcation petition was the sheer example for this.
