It is already known that the chief minister of Andhra Pradesh YS Jagan Mohan Reddy is planning to develop 3 independent capitals in the state. He is against the development of Amaravati as the only capital of Andhra Pradesh.

Today, Chandrababu mocked Jagan while speaking about the 3 capitals issue.

“Does any state or country in the world have 3 capitals? What on earth is Jagan trying to do? He himself said a capital needs to have at least 30,000 acres while he was the opposition leader. Now, he is developing 3 independent capitals which do not match the criteria. He is contradicting his own argument,” Naidu said.

Chandrababu further added that Jagan does not have the required expertise to develop a capital and that is very much evident now.

“Jagan usually says he will stand by his word and will not change his stand. But he is repeatedly changing his stand on the capital,” Naidu said.

Jagan had recently announced that Kurnool, Amaravati, and Vizag will be the three capitals of Andhra Pradesh.
