Donakonda in Prakasam district is the Sivaramakrishna committee’s choice for the new capital for Andhra Pradesh, highly-placed sources told TOI. The committee prefers multi-locational development of Andhra Pradesh, which means that governmental offices be set up in many cities and not in one city alone, the sources added. But since the Naidu government wants a capital akin to Singapore with concentration of government offices and also a hub for investment, the committee has zeroed on Donakonda where barren land is available. “For a huge city like Singapore a lot of land is required and Donakonda fits the bill,” sources told TOI.
