The much-anticipated move of Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy to shift the CMO and residence from Tadepalli to Visakhapatnam has been delayed once again. The Chief Minister had previously hinted at the possibility of Visakhapatnam becoming the executive capital of the State during the Global Investors’ Summit held in March. However, no specific date was mentioned at the time.

Earlier, YSRCP leaders had speculated that CM Jagan might move to Visakhapatnam in July, coinciding with the start of the academic year. Nevertheless, this plan did not materialise. Later, YV Subba Reddy, YSRCP in-charge of North Andhra and Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanams (TTD) Chairman, announced that the move would happen in September after overcoming legal hurdles. He also said that the State Secretariat would be relocated to Visakhapatnam by September. Several buildings, including private ones on Bhimili Road, have been identified for use as administrative offices in the port city.

There were speculations that CM Jagan might make the move in the first week of September during the auspicious month of Sravanam, which is considered favourable for new ventures.

However, now, State Industries Minister Gudivada Amarnath, who hails from Anakapalle, has indicated that CM Jagan will make a sensational decision by Dasara. He stated that the long-cherished dream of the people of Visakhapatnam and North Andhra to see the capital shifting would be realised by the time of the Dasara festival. According to Amarnath, significant changes in the State administration are also expected to be implemented by Dasara, much to the delight of party leaders, cadre, and the public. He expressed confidence that everything will be finalised by the time of the festival.

It remains to be seen if CM Jagan’s move to the port city will indeed occur during the festive season, bringing about a shift in the State’s administrative centre.
