The high court order has been contested by the state administration in a petition to the supreme Court. When questioned about the announcement, G v Satyanarayana, a former chairman of CREDAI's Visakhapatnam chamber, said the move was wise because Visakhapatnam is a modern city with the necessary facilities.
He told PTI, "Visakhapatnam has critical facilities like an international airport, road connectivity, and port connectivity, which is important for the capital city. He predicted that once the capital is formed, the real estate sector would have a bright future. Decentralization is something that retired IAS officer and former Union cabinet secretary EAS Sharma indicated he would support. "The inhabitants of vizag will bear a heavy burden if vizag is made the capital. According to him, it will cause a water deficit, increase pollution, and raise rent.
According to Pydah krishna Prasad, president of the Visakhapatnam Chamber of Commerce and Industry, the city is well-developed and would make the best capital. "Industrialists that are interested in investing will search for facilities in the area... The city is one of the biggest in andhra pradesh, has all amenities, and is well-developed, according to him. An vehicle driver lamented the fact that creating a capital would not solve people's issues. In fact, it would only make problems like traffic congestion worse.
