Visakhapatnam: Regional coordinator and TTD chairman Y.V. Subba Reddy said that YSRC government was determined to develop all the regions and three capitals.

Talking to the media after JAC preparatory meeting on Visakha Garjana in Visakhapatnam on Friday, Subba Reddy said the party has a clear agenda on the three-capital policy and slammed the Opposition for setting a false narrative and asserted that the YSRC was keen to develop Amaravati too.

"The YSRC government is establishing a legislative capital in Amaravati. Opposition parties are trying to give a bad impression about the government and misleading the public saying that the YSRCP is trying to stall the development of Amaravati," he said.

Rebutting the claims of opposition parties, Subba Reddy stated that while the state government is committed to develop Amaravati as a legislative capital, Vizag also needs to be developed as an administrative capital.

“Vizag is developed in all measures and we need not spend a single penny on developing the city as the capital. With the existing establishments in Vizag, we can immediately start functioning from the capital as it is fully developed,’’ he said and added that Kurnool will also be developed as the judicial capital. Chief Minister Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy’s motto is also to ensure de-centralisation of administration.

“Since it is the wish of the Andhra Pradesh people, we are committed to do that," Subba Reddy said.

Minister for Industries and IT Gudivada Amarnath said the opportunity given by the Chief Minister to make Visakhapatnam capital should not be wasted. He said location of capital in Visakhapatnam would hasten the development of the north Andhra region which remained backward for decades.
