Notwithstanding the temporary hurdles created in the formation of three capitals for Andhra Pradesh, with the bills getting referred to the select committee and the high court taking up hearing on the petitions stalling the capital shift, the YSRC government is going ahead as per the plan in taking steps to make Visakhapatnam as the administrative capital.
If the reports coming from the power corridors are to be believed, YSR Congress party president and chief minister Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy is most likely to start operating from Visakhapatnam from the Telugu New Year Day, Ugadi, which falls on March 25.
According to these reports, the chief minister’s office in Amaravati has already issued instructions to Visakhapatnam district authorities to make necessary arrangements for the functioning of the chief minister from Ugadi, the day suggested by Visakha Sarada Peetham seers.
In all probability, the CMO will operate from Millennium Tower, which is being developed as the state secretariat. An entire floor would be allotted to the CMO, including Jagan’s chamber and the offices of his advisors, besides conference hall, cabinet meeting hall and a video-conferencing hall.
“Jagan is firm on shifting the capital, come what may. Let the shifting of Secretariat take its own time, but he wants to shift his office from Visakhapatnam under any circumstances,” sources said.
