He even sarcastically questioned opposition, Is Visakhapatnam a wild forest to get scared?" Rajendranath further added that Amaravati Metropolitan Region will be the legislative capital of the state. Visakhapatnam Metropolitan Region will be the executive capital, which means the secretariat will be shifted from Amaravati to the port city and Kurnool will be the judicial capital.

TDP government has done real estate business in the name of constructing a capital to the state, said the Minister.

Rajendranath said," TDP government had allocated 1600 acres of land to 125 organizations, and 1300 acres to private companies." He Criticized the Chandrababu Naidu government for making numerous manipulations in allotting lands to private companies and government agencies.
