Amaravati: Speculation is increasing over the change of AP capital from Amaravathi. YSRCP leaders with their party expected to come to power are now concentrating on Donakonda region in Ongole district. Pressure is increasing from YSRCP leaders and real estate brokers on behalf of them in the place.
Already many deals are happening and not only people from nearby places but also from Vijayawada and Hyderabad are coming and examining and showing interest in acquiring the lands. Even land rates are increasing slowly but steadily. Those who are confident of Jagan becoming CM of AP are showing interest in such purchases.
In 2014 rumours spread that Donakonda would become the AP capital if YSRCP comes to power. Many reports came that few YSRCP leaders and especially people from Kadapa acquired lands around that region expecting Donakonda to become the capital. However TDP which came to power, started capital construction near Tadepalli, Guntur district.
Jagan during that time opposed this move. In YSRCP manifesto, the party did not talk about Amaravati. So rumours are spreading that if YSRCP comes to power, there may be changes in AP capital. This is triggering increases in purchases near Donakonda.
