YV Subba Reddy YCP: As per the regulations outlined during the bifurcation of United Andhra Pradesh, Hyderabad was slated to serve as the joint capital of both Andhra Pradesh and Telangana for a period of 10 years. With this timeframe set to conclude in June, there’s a surprising push from the YSR Congress advocating for Hyderabad to remain the joint capital until Vizag is fully established as the capital of Andhra Pradesh.
YCP spokesperson and newly nominated Rajya Sabha candidate, YV Subba Reddy, has firmly advocated for this stance, emphasizing the need for Hyderabad to continue as the united capital until Vizag reaches full functionality.
Subba Reddy has pledged to champion this cause in the Rajya Sabha, vowing to advocate for Hyderabad’s status as the joint capital of the Telugu states.
However, the historical operational patterns reveal that the Andhra Pradesh government has never fully embraced the concept of a joint capital. The TDP government designated Amaravati as the capital, while the YSRC government prioritized the development of Vizag as the executive capital. Given this trajectory, reverting to Hyderabad as the joint capital within just four months of the regulated 10-year tenure’s conclusion doesn’t appear to hold strong legal or political validity, as noted by a seasoned political analyst.
