A latest map of India released by the Centre after the abrogation of Article 370 has triggered a row, as Amaravati, the capital of Andhra Pradesh was missing from it.
The new map was issued after reorganisation of the new union territories of Jammu & Kashmir and Ladakh, which was officially done on October 31.
The map showed the outlines of all states, with the capitals marked in red. While the state of Telangana saw Hyderabad being marked clearly, many were upset as Amaravati did not find a place.
Meanwhile, the five-member committee, comprising urban planning experts, is headed by retired IAS officer G. Nageswara Rao, and will receive opinions and suggestions from people until November 12. The committee can be contacted at [email protected] gmail.com or via post, at No. 56-15-53, Vinayaka Temple Rd, Patamata, Vijayawada, 520010.
Municipal Administration Minister Botsa Satyanarayana had said that the government will decide on the development of Amaravati after the expert committee's report.
Releasing the new map of India, the Centre said that the new Union Territory of Ladakh consists of two districts -- Kargil and Leh. The rest of the former state of Jammu and Kashmir is in the new Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir.
