TDP leader and former chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu’s dream project, lost the status as Andhra Pradesh’s capital, as the state Assembly’s special session passed the AP Decentralisation and Equal Development of All Regions Act, 2020. The Act paves the way to set up three state capitals. The state Cabinet decided to relegate Amaravati as the legislative capital and make Visakhapatnam the executive capital, where the secretariat and Raj Bhavan would be located. Kurnool in Rayalaseema will be developed as judicial capital, where the AP High Court would be located. The AP Decentralisation and Equal Development of All Regions Bill was introduced and passed amid protests from Opposition Telugu Desam Party MLAs.
