Andhra Capital case is sub judice, but CM declares Visakhapatnam as Capital!

Jagan Mohan Reddy, after he became the Chief Minister, proposed three Capitals - Visakhapatnam as Executive Capital, Amaravati as Legislative Capital and Kurnool as the Judicial Capital - for Andhra Pradesh and got a legislation passed, which the High Court declared invalid. The apex court stayed the verdict.

HYDERABAD, Jan 31: Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Jagan Mohan Reddy announced on Tuesday that Visakhapatnam will be the State's Capital instead of Amaravati. He did not speak on his 3-Capital plan. However, the announcement comes at a time when the case is sub judice - pending in the Supreme Court.

Amaravati was made the new Andhra Capital by the then Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu in 2015 after it lost Hyderabad to the new State of Telangana which was carved out of Andhra Pradesh. Telangana was carved out of Andhra Pradesh in 2014.

"Here I am to invite you to Visakhapatnam which is going to be our Capital in the days to come. I myself would also be shifting over to Visakhapatnam in the months to come," Jagan Mohan Reddy announced. He did not speak on his 3-Capital plan. His announcement comes when the apex court is yet to decide on his appeal against the High Court verdict which nullified his 3-Capital legislation. The case was posted for January 31 in the apex court but it did not come up for hearing. The Supreme Court had, however, stayed the High Court order.

He was in New Delhi addressing an International Diplomatic Alliance Meet, a preparatory meeting for the Global Investors Summit, which is scheduled to be held in Visakhapatnam in March. The meeting was attended by several foreign dignitaries.

The Naidu Government had earlier acquired 33,000 acres of land in Amaravati for the new Capital. However, the acquisition has been mired in disputes with farmers.

In 2019 Assembly elections Chandrababu Naidu lost to the YSRCP and Jagan Mohan became the Chief Minister, who proposed three Capitals - Visakhapatnam as Executive Capital, Amaravati as Legislative Capital and Kurnool as the Judicial Capital and passed a legislation to this effect in the Assembly.

The legislation was challenged by farmers in the High Court which declared it void. The verdict of March 3, 2022 said the State Legislature lacked competence to make any legislation for shifting, bifurcating or trifurcating the Capital.

The Government later appealed in the Supreme Court against the verdict. The apex court stayed the High Court order. It said “Courts cannot become a town planner and Chief Engineer". The case was to be heard by the apex court on January 31 but did not come up.
