Capital to shift on Ugadi

Visakhapatnam is dominating Jagan’s heart and mind. He is physically running the government from Amaravati but he is preoccupied with the thought of shifting to Visakhapatnam. It is learnt that Jagan is keen to shift the capital to Visakhapatnam before the budget session. YSRCP government is moving ahead with a strategy. Jagan is not bothered about the chaos over shifting of the capital. He is sticking to his three capital concept. Not just this, he wants to complete this process as early as possible.

Meanwhile, the doubts as to what the Centre will do over three capital issue and whether it will put a brake to it have also cleared. The Centre made it clear in the Parliament that this is a state subject. At the same time Chief Minister Jagan also called on Prime Minister Modi. He explained to PM the circumstances under which he mooted the idea of three capitals. Thus Jagan also cleared this hurdle. Now only the shifting remains.

Meanwhile, during the cabinet meeting Jagan is said to have given clear signals on shifting the capital to Visakhapatnam. He is said to have told them that capital shifting to Visakhapatnam is required before the budget. March 25 is Ugadi, the new year for Telugu people. Jagan believes that this day will be auspicious. The same day Jagan also plans to distribute house sites among poor at Visakhapatnam. Jagan has also invited Modi for this prestigious event. If Modi comes this will put a clear official seal on three capitals.

The process will start with shifting of executive capital to Visakhapatnam. This is expected to begin on Ugadi. Subsequently in the first week of April budget session will be held at Assembly building in Amaravati. By doing this Jagan wants to give a clear message to people of Amaravati that despite creation of three capitals, Assembly will remain in Amaravati and thus the capital will not move from there. Overall, Jagan is said to be counting the days to move to Visakhapatnam.
