Visakhapatnam will be the new Andhra Pradesh capital-

In recent news, Andhra Pradesh's Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy announced that the port and industrial city of Visakhapatnam, also known for its cosmopolitan culture, will be the new capital of the state. The state's original plans to develop Amaravati as the state's capital have been discarded. This comes nine years after the creation of Telangana, which was carved out of Andhra Pradesh's territory and was given Hyderabad as its capital. Jagan addressed an International Diplomatic Alliance meeting in Delhi and urged investors to visit and do business in Visakhapatnam. Despite facing opposition from the Andhra Pradesh High Court, the state government has challenged the ruling in the Supreme Court. The city, already hosting necessary infrastructure, is expected to see a significant population and real estate growth upon becoming the capital.

Important points to remember:

  1. Understand the historical and strategic importance of Visakhapatnam.
  2. Find more in-depth information about the political and legal implications of this development.
  3. Investigate the potential impact on the city's demographics and infrastructure.
  4. Evaluate the response of the locals and business sectors such as real estate.
