Andhra Pradesh withdraws controversial three-capital bill

Amaravati/IBNS: The YS Jaganmohan Reddy-led government in Andhra Pradesh has withdrawn the controversial three-capital bill after a spate of legal hindrances.

Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy, however, said his government would bring a "comprehensive, complete and better" Bill.

"Our intention of a decentralised development of the state has been twisted, distorted and a misinformation launched. Also, legal hurdles were created and court cases filed," Reddy said in the assembly.

The 2020 Act was being repealed to protect the larger interests of people, the CM informed.

The AP Decentralisation and Inclusive Development Bill was meant to trifurcate Andhra Pradesh's capital into three – the executive capital at Vizag, legislative capital at Amaravati, judicial capital at Kurnool.

Reddy assured that his government would explain its " genuine intention and the need for decentralisation" to all concerned and incorporate necessary changes in the new Bill.
