The shocking move by Jagan: AP government transfers all its buildings in Hyderabad to Telangana
The Andhra Pradesh government on Sunday surrendered all its buildings located in the common capital of Hyderabad to Telangana, exactly five years after the bifurcation of combined state.
An order to this effect was issued by Governor E S L Narasimhan, invoking his powers under Section 8 of the Andhra Pradesh Reorganisation Act, 2014, following a request made by the Telangana cabinet in the afternoon. The combined state of Andhra Pradesh was bifurcated to carve out a separate state of Telangana on June 2, 2014. As part of the bifurcation act, Hyderabad remains a common capital for both the Telugu states for a period of 10 years, that is still 2024. As such, the government buildings in Hyderabad were divided between the two states to continue their functioning from the common capital.
With this, dissent is growing against Jagan's move. Many in social media platforms have questioned and criticized the decision of the AP government. Even none of the YCP leaders or official spokespersons of the party have commented on the crucial development.
YCP-led AP government has "played down" the whole issue and remained "tight-lipped" about it. This naturally hasn't gone down well with a section of people who has Andhra sentiment. This is indeed first and a major shock from Jagan to the people of AP. Meanwhile, YCP leaders are busy lobbying for their berths in Jagan's cabinet.
