Chief Minister Jagan Mohan Reddy had indicated on December 17 that Andhra Pradesh could have three capitals as decentralization was a real concept.
The Andhra Pradesh cabinet on Friday deferred taking a decision on relocating the state capital, official sources said.
Though the cabinet discussed the recommendations of the expert committee, it did not make a decision as it wanted to wait for the report of an international consulting firm, which had expected to submit the report on January 3, they said. The cabinet will meet again after that and take a decision, they added.
On the other side, farmers who had given up their land for the proposed capital city at Amaravati, have been agitating over the last couple of days, demanding that the government drop its plan to relocate Andhra Pradesh's capital.
Today, these protests went to peak level as lady farmers attacked the well known TV9 journalist Deepthi who commented that some people from here are paid artists.
Looking at all these circumstances, it looks like this capital issue had destined for a long time procedure to undergo and it is quite sure that the upcoming days in AP politics will get heated.
