AP Govt notifies Kurnool as Headquarters for HRC
The AP state government had issued Gazette Notification naming Kurnool as headquarters for the AP Human Rights Commission.
The Gazette Notification was issued on August 26 in the name of chief secretary Adityanath Das.
Kurnool, which was the first capital of Andhra State in 1953, was now identified as the judicial capital of the residuary state of Andhra Pradesh, after seven decades.
Though there are cases pending against the state government’s move of having three capitals – legislative capital at Amaravati, judicial capital at Kurnool and executive capital at Visakhapatnam – the state government had made its move to make Kurnool as judicial capital by shifting HRC there.
The state government wants the High Court too to be shifted to Kurnool, but it would require a fresh notification by the President of India who is guided by the Central government. In such case, the Narendra Modi government has to fall in line with the Jagan Mohan Reddy government of having three capitals in the state.
The government also wants to have its legal department, all commissions to be relocated in Kurnool. With the first move on HRC, the government is planning to follow suit on shifting other offices connected to judiciary or legal to Kurnool in a phased manner.
The government is also planning to move some key departments to the executive capital at Visakhapatnam, but it may not happen right now due to some legal issues. The chief minister wants to take his own time to shift his base from Tadepalli to Visakhapatnam, which would finally mean the three capitals being implemented.
