Initially it was planned that Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu will announce the capital of the state today in the Assembly. Later, the government decided to postpone the announcement date as they came to know that Tuesday is not an auspicious day. Chandrababu Naidu is going to announce this on Thursday, which is Dasami.
Andhra Pradesh Agriculture Minister Pratipati Pulla Rao said that the Cheif Minister has already finalised Vijayawada and Guntur will be the capital and he is in consultation with the Central government on the next actions to set up capital and infrastructure. He also told that Guntur farmers are ready to give 8000 plus acres if the new capital is named after NTR.
