HYDERABAD: The Andhra Pradesh Government is keen on having its  own capital at the earliest and has urged the Sivaramakrishnan Committee to submit its report by August 20 to enable it to begin construction of the capital. The committee has agreed to the request.

Municipal and urban development minister P Narayana, who is heading the nine-member capital advisory committee constituted by the state government, briefed the media about the committee’s meeting and the meeting of chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu with the Sivaramakrishnan Committee here on Saturday.

“We are looking for a centrally located place which is equally  accessible from all the regions of the state and which also meets all the parameters that the Sivaramakrishnan Committee is looking for like land, water, natural resources, rail, road and air connectivity, economic, social and cultural growth, feasibility of constructions and other parameters.”  Narayana said they would take stock of the situation with places considered to be the best capital cities in the country  and study what is best suited to AP.
