Andhra Pradesh Budget session has started today with Governor’s speech. It is known to all that the Government prepares the speech and it will be read by the Governor.
So the speech naturally boasts of Government’s achievements and priorities. Naturally, the speech should have the mention of three capitals but it is not the case today.
The Governor mentioned about the decentralization and inclusive development but only confined to the reorganization of districts and new administration from Ugadi.
In the wake of the recent High Court’s ruling, the Government itself is confused about what to do about the three capitals and so did not want to take any risk mentioning it in the Governor’s speech.
Did Jagan Government feared to mention it? Or Governor refused to talk about it as it will amount to contempt of court?
On the other hand, Minister Botsa Satyanarayana also made interesting comments on this issue. He mentioned that the courts may have given such a ruling because Hyderabad is the capital of Andhra Pradesh till 2024.
This is the first time anyone from the YSR Congress mention about Hyderabad and that gives rise to doubts if the Government wants to keep the issue in back burner until 2024.
