Although many ministers were talking about this, it was the first time that the chief minister had issued a categorical statement about shifting the administrative capital to Visakhapatnam.

In 2019, the YSR Congress Party (YSRCP) government floated the idea of ​​three state capitals with Visakhapatnam as the administrative capital. However, protests by farmers in Amaravati over the transfer of the capital and a Supreme Court order directing the government to develop Amaravati as the state capital have delayed the process.

On 17 December 2019, Jagan Mohan Reddy announced in the state assembly that three state capitals would be developed in contrast to the previous TDP government’s decision to develop Amaravati as the state capital.

The YSRCP government put forward Visakhapatnam as the administrative capital, Kurnool as the judicial capital and Amaravati as the legislative capital.

This sparked massive protests by farmers in Amaravati who granted 33,000 acres of land to the capital, and the previous government also took over work on some components of the mega-project.

On March 3, 2022, the Andhra Pradesh High Court ordered the state government to develop Amaravati as the state capital within six months. A three-judge panel had ruled on 75 petitions by Amaravati farmers and others challenging the government’s move in three capitals.

However, the state government filed an appeal in the Supreme Court. In November last year, the Supreme Court stopped the Supreme Court’s order saying the court could not act as a city planner or architect.
