The political history of Andhra Pradesh is basically a rivalry between two castes – the Reddys and the Kammas. It dates back to 1984, when Sri N.T.Ramarao became the Chief Minister of Andhra. The situations were quite calm till 2009. But after the demise of former Chief Minister Sri Y.S.Rajasekhara Reddy, the tables turned.
As of now Sri Y.S.Jagan Mohan Reddy, son of Sri Y.S.Rajasekhara Reddy succeeded and won over N.Chandrababu Naidu, who served as CM of Andhra Pradesh for two times.
Sri N.Chandrababu Naidu declared Amaravati as the capital city of Andhra Pradesh in 2014 after the bifurcation of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana. The APCRDA Act was passed in December 2014 and Voluntary Land Pooling Scheme, in order to acquire lands for development, was announced in January 2015. Most of the area around Amaravati are purely fertile agricultural fields. Lands were acquired and most of the construction works were not complete and then came elections.
As mentioned, Sri.Y.S.Jagan Mohan Reddy won over N.Chandra Babu Naidu with a great majority in 2019. As the time passed, Sri.Y.S.Jagan Mohan Reddy proposed to change the capital of Andhra Pradesh.
The APCRDA Act was abolished in June 2020 and currently the Government is planning for three capitals.
WHAT IS GOING WRONG?
The current CM, who is basically from Reddy community is going against all the actions taken by former CM, who is from Kamma community. Many people are protesting at Amaravati, where most of them are from Kamma community.
So finally, instead of development, there is a clash between the communities.
WHAT ABOUT DEVELOPMENT?
As of now, steps for the development of the State are being taken by the Government but are mostly objected by the opposition, throwing the people into a jeopardy.
There are clear signs that the present CM is doing a decently good job by taking necessary measures and the people are satisfied. But most of the steps taken now are against the decisions made by the previous government. So ultimately, caste based control is established here. And it’s time to stop that and focus on proper development.
