The YSRCP administration, led by Chief Minister YS Jaganmohan Reddy, has made a surprise decision by withdrawing three capitals bills. The decision was made, according to reports, at a cabinet meeting convened by Chief Minister Jagan on Monday (today). The decision of the Andhra Pradesh government was delivered to the AP High Court on Monday by the advocate general.
The government of Andhra Pradesh, on the other hand, is yet to make an official pronouncement in this regard. It's unclear whether Jagan intends to drop the three capitals bill entirely or make amendments to the present measure to address legal and technological concerns. Today before the Legislative Assembly, Jagan is scheduled to clarify the situation.
Farmers believe that Jagan backtracked on three capitals as a result of their protests, as the decision came as Amaravathi farmers held a padayatra from Amaravathi to Tirupati. However, there are concerns that Jagan would introduce three capital bills in a modified version in order to overcome legal and technical obstacles to his three capitals proposal.
