Guwahati News Desk: After a spate of legal hurdles, the Y.S. Jaganmohan Reddy-led government in Andhra Pradesh has withdrawn the controversial three-capital Bill, i.e. the “AP Decentralisation and Inclusive Development Bill.”
The information was released by the Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh Reddy and the decision to scrap the Bill was taken at an emergency cabinet meeting held on Sunday.
However, he also said that his government would bring a “comprehensive, complete and better” Bill.
The CM further added, “Our intention of a decentralised development of the state has been twisted, distorted and a misinformation launched. Also, legal hurdles were created and court cases filed.”
Regarding, the AP Decentralisation and Inclusive Development Bill, it was meant to trifurcate Andhra Pradesh’s capital into three – the executive capital at Vizag, legislative capital at Amaravati, judicial capital at Kurnool.
