Chandrababu Naidu, who claims to be the maker of modern Hyderabad, is facing an existentialist dilemma – to leave the city or not. At one level, the choice was made for him the moment Telangana was created on June 2, 2014. Now two years and four months later, on Dussehra, the last of the Andhra Pradesh government offices has moved to Velugupadu – the makeshift interim secretariat in Amaravati. What remains is Naidu’s office in the L Block of the old secretariat, which the Andhra Pradesh chief minister seldom uses when in Hyderabad. A year ago, Naidu had moved his chief minister’s office to Vijayawada and now to Velugupadu and is seldom seen in Hyderabad. But in what appears to be a contradiction, Naidu is yet to clear out of Hyderabad and does not propose to do so till June 1, 2024. Until then, Hyderabad will be the joint capital of Telangana and Andhra Pradesh. The buildings vacated by the Andhra Pradesh secretariat will remain in the possession of that state government and will not be handed over to Telangana. Thus Hyderabad will be the de jure capital of Andhra Pradesh while Amaravati will be its de facto seat of power.
