The Amaravati Conservation Committee (ACC,) which has been in Delhi for the past 7 days, met Ram Nath Kovind, the President of India, on the 7th of February.

A few Telugu Desam Party (TDP) Members of Parliament (MPs) met President Kovind on the 7th day of their Delhi tour.  The meeting was organised to inform President Kovind regarding the ongoing agitation in Amaravati against the State Government.

Farmers in Amaravati are on an indefinite strike and are protesting against the Yuvajana Sramika Rythu Congress Party (YSRCP) Government for its proposal of having 3 State capitals.

Previously, Amaravati was to be the sole capital of A.P.  However, due to the financial crisis in A.P., and considering other issues related to development, the YSRCP proposed to include Visakhapatnam and Kurnool as Andhra Pradesh’s capitals as well.

The members of the ACC appealed to Mr. Kovind to intervene in the matter and resolve the capital issue in Amaravati.

The Committee members also met Nitin Gadkari, the Transport Minister of India, as well as other Union ministers regarding the State capital issue.

Meanwhile, the Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy led YSRCP is planning to go ahead with decentralising Andhra Pradesh’s capital.

The YSRCP Government plans to have Visakhapatnam as the administrative capital, Kurnool as the judicial capital and Amaravati as the legislative capital of Andhra Pradesh.
