Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Chandra Babu Naidu is playing his cards closer regarding the next capital of the state. It is almost certain that the capital will be near to Vijayawada but the exact location is not being revealed to keep realtors at bay. However the rumours are ripe that Chandra Babu is considering Mangalagiri and Nuzivid for the capitals. Mangalagiri will be the first choice if the local farmers agree for the land acquisition formula proposed by the government.

If the farmers do not agree to the proposal, then government will consider the option of Nuzivid where there are ample government lands. Chandra Babu had consituted a committee under the chairmanship of Finance Minister Yanamala Ramakrishnudu to formulate the land acquistion proposals. Government has also sent a circular to all the departments of the government to finalize the amount of space required for their office spaces. The Chief Minister is expected to make an announcement on the capital in the state Assembly on Thursday,
