I think Vijayawada will be the best place for capital as it is connected with better rail, road, air and with forthing machilipatnam port it will also be connected with sea. Also there is a possibility to develop twine cities like hyderabad & secunderabad, here vijayawada and guntur. Vast area will be developed in two districts. Hence I prefer always Vijayawada.

after telangna separate if capital give vizag then after 20 years they rise as separate uttarandra as telangana says right now, if tirupathi gives pratyela rayalseema, so i prefer vijayawada and guntur capital as twin cities and its better option for every one...... land is no matter for developing, its have more land if both become greater vijayawada and greater guntur, its near to machilipatnam and nijampatnam, so sea way also develop, road and railway vijayawada is big in south asia and south india also, gannavaram airport also will develop easily............. everything is good for vijayawada become next capital of andhra...... vijayawada not have choice to ask separate andhra or anything alsoooooo. sp it is the best

who told to you that vijaywada has scarcity of land............. that is not correct, if vijayawada will be greater most of the land come under vijayawada...... without knowing anything dont say it has not..... and vijaywada is best for next capital. because vijayawada has no issues like uttarandhra(vizag) and rayalseema(tirupathi and karnool). it is between the all cities and well connected to main cities. it has asias biggest railway junction and biggest bus station. and it is the business capital of andhra pradesh. it has airport it can be develop internationally if vijayawada become capital. and it has near to bapatla, machilipatnam, nizampatnam..... we can improve navy if become vijayawada will be capital...... mainly it has not water problem like other cities have....... if vijayawada will be capital vijayawada and guntur can be call as twin cities...... I.T has not a problem at all if once become capital automatically we can get companies here...... and many more profits if vijayawada will be capital.........

Vijayawada and guntur are at the middle of coastal andhra. They have to become capital.

If vizag becomes capital, people in rayalaseema should travel 1000 kms to reach vizag. And if any city in south andhra becomes capital, vizag people should travel arround 1000 kms to reach capital. If vizag becomes capital, people from orissa will migrate and use all the facilities so the capital is more useful to orissa than rayalaseema. same thing we see more tamilians if tirupati becomes capital.

Vijayawada being the center place between hyd, chennai and vizag should be the capital, this is even the junction for whole south india. Have very good prospects. Vijayawada has sea coast at 50 KMS in machilipatnam. A huge bridge on the krishna will give a very posh look like london bridge/golden gate bridge to the city.

People from andhra will build a great city as new capital. There is no doubt in that. Capital in the middle of the coast will do justice to all the coastal andhra people. If vijayawada becomes capital. the highway between nellore to vizag shoud become 10 way.

Now the rich and smart brain coastal andhrites will build their own city and open the market for the whole india and europe. In the next 20 years you see tall buildings like mumbai.

i love vishakapatnam,
but keeping topography and future issues in mind i would suggest vijayawada to be a new capital with its twin city as Guntur.
then even the population would go easily >5 millions in next 5 years . hope software as well would emerge in this new the next 10 years this city could compete with hyderabad. Then new andhra would have two major metros called vizag and vijayawada(guntur twin city capital).
that would prove stamina of andhra people again.

vizag cant become capital because capital should be located in the middle its not the matter of resources,capital is meant to be geographically located in middle so it is apparently Vijayawada or ongole should become capital

I wish that let AP remain as such.
In case Telengana Gets separated Hyderabad as its capital.
Then to see that no conflict takes place between
Rayalasemma and Coastal Andhra.They have to identify a place
from the border of Rayalaseema and Coastal Andhra
and mark it as a capital region to be developed, a new city.. that too planned.. like Chandigarh.
It should be a separate Urban district which will have easy access to both Rayalaseema and Coastal Andhra.While selecting such place/area it is better to ensure that a Sea Port is nearby ( say 40-60 Kms).

Otherwise Vijayawada+Mangalagiri+Guntur+ Tenali Urban region is Okay, Machilipatnam port also is nearby. And there is another big new port is coming up near Ongole. Moreover Vijayawda/Guntur are centrally located and have access to all parts of Semmandhra.
Let Kurnool be Sub-Capital/ II capital like Nagpur for Maharashtra and few assembly sessions can be held there.
