Chandrababu Naidu detained outside Andhra assembly

Former Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister and Telugu Desam Party chief N Chandrababu Naidu was detained outside Andhra Pradesh Legislative Assembly on Monday. Police detained him and his supporters and took them at his residence.

Naidu protested against Andhra CM Jagan Mohan Reddy's bill seeking three capitals for the state.

"Nowhere in the world for one state there are 3 capitals. Today is a black day, we wanted to save Amaravati and Andhra Pradesh. Not only me, throughout the state, but people are also fighting and coming on roads. Govt is arresting everyone. It's bad for democracy," said Naidu.

Andhra CM Jagan Mohan Reddy moved AP Decentralisation and Inclusive Development of All Regions Bill 2020, earlier on Monday. The bill calls for three separate capitals for the state of Andhra Pradesh.
