Please see this and recommend for our capital at Vijayawada.
I mention here why Vijayawada deserves as capital.
Land for capital is not a problem.
Land from Vijayawada to Nagayalanka / Nizampatnam plenty of Delta land is available.
This proposal, I am giving not to waste fertile land of our state. More than 1,00,000 Hector
land is in Krishna Delta Basin (Delta area- Right from Vijayawada to sea Nahayalanka /
Nizam Patnam)
Sir in fact we can have our own International Airport in this Delta itself
We can make new proposed ring Road (tunnel way 4 + 4 under Krishna River ) from Nidamanur
Krishna district to Guntur district (to Tadepalli)
Please look the possibility.
This I sent to you earlier also.

Sir I am sending some Photos in water Just for an Idea only because we propose to construct in water.

Dear Sirs
I am putting this with my 47 years of construction of various projects and
travel in more than 20 countries(East and West)

OUR ANDHRA NEW CAPITAL (Please share this)

I personally hope you are all struggling for land for “CAPITAL OF ANDHRA”.
It is here, Right in front of your vicinity and centre place in Andhra .
My dear Rayala seema Leaders please think once. If capital is in Kurnool, it is one side.
If it is in Vizag or Ongole again it is another side. I want to suggest right in centre of
Andhra i.e. VIJAYAWADA.
Why Vijayawada, please read the trailing document. You may ask where the land is for this.
That is question.
Dear Friends you know Krishna River is flowing right in the middle of Vijayawada and 3 canals
are through Vijayawada. The water in Krishna River is there hardly for 1 / 2 months in a year.
That too only in rainy season. No matter. Rest 10 / 11 months no water except gates of
Dam leaking water.
Now for the land Right in the middle of River i.e. in Delta area Thousands of hectors of land
is available. Since the Vijayawada level from sea is 12 Mts height. The water never comes in
from sea. If you take Geographical phenomena in the world so many cities are built in middle
of water. So, construction of Building for Capital in this delta land is most suitable if the Buildings
are designed for flood resistance. This capital will be “UNIC” in Design and “UNIC” in the world.
Japan Built an Air Port in the sea. If you see most of European cities are in the water or side of
water. Think Sidney tower where it is right in middle of water. So, let us also sea our capital from
space as unic. Let us design a Memorable and “Eighth Wonder of world” as Capital and not as
normal Buildings

How Vijayawada is desirable capital look once the trailing History.

VIJAYAWADA
Vijayawada, formerly known as Bezawada, with a population of nearly 1 million, is the third largest
in Andhra Pradesh (India). Located in Krishna District, the city is on the northern bank of the river
Krishna, at a distance of 275 km from Hyderabad. Vijayawada literally translates to "The Place of
Victory" in the local language which is Telugu. Its prominence as a major trading and business center
has earned it the title of the “Business” Capital of Andhra Pradesh”. Vijayawada is also a major
agricultural hub of the state due to its rich hinter-lands in the Krishna Basin. Major irrigation canals
from the river Krishna and major power projects such as the Vijayawada Thermal Power Station
(VTPS) and Lanco Kondapalli Thermal Power Station make Vijayawada an important economic
hub of Andhra Pradesh. The Vijayawada city is having an area of about 261.88 km2 with a

The Krishna River is a dominant part of the geography of Vijayawada and runs through the city.
Although the hills in Vijayawada are a continuation of the Eastern Ghat chains, they, in general have
a low elevation compared to the rest of the Ghats. The high fertility of the soil in the region is a
result of the River Krishna flowing through it.

Again the same in nut shell

In order to gather an all encompassing understanding about Vijayawada, it is essential to
know in detail the geography of Vijayawada. Vijayawada is located at 16.52° North Latitude
80.62° East Longitude and the average elevation of the land of the city of Vijayawada is about
39 feet above the sea level.

Topography is the most prominent feature of Vijayawada Geography. The landscape of
Vijayawada is marked by undulating small and medium sized hillocks with extensive plain
lands between them. The Krishna River is a dominant part of the geography of Vijayawada
and runs through the city. Although the hills in Vijayawada are a continuation of the Eastern
Ghat chains, they, in general have a low elevation compared to the rest of the Ghats. The high
fertility of the soil in the region is a result of the River Krishna flowing through it.

The climate of Vijayawada is an integral part of the geography of Vijayawada. Marked by hot
summers, the temperature in the summer months goes on ascending and can even reach up
to 50 degree centigrade. The winter months on the other hand are cool and pleasant and the
temperature varies from 10 degree centigrade to 30 degree centigrade. The region experiences
regular rainfall, caused by the south-west and north-east monsoons. The area is somewhat prone
to cyclones which have resulted in the place being nicknamed as "Blazewada".

Climate of Vijayawada


The climate of Vijayawada is very much dependent on the geography of Vijayawada. With the
River Krishna flowing through it, the Indrakeeladri Hills in the west and the Budameru stream in the
north, the climate of Vijayawada is essentially a tropical one. The summers are hot and humid
and the winters are moderate.

In the summer months the climate of Vijayawada is dominated by the scorching heat which
gets hotter with every day and level of humidity also rises. Summer months in Vijayawada
stretches from the month of April to the month of June. The temperatures during these months
range from 17 degree centigrade to 45 degree centigrade. The climate of Vijayawada is very humid
and during the summer months the humidity rises up to 68 per cent.

In the winter season, the climate of Vijayawada is moderate and in fact very cool and pleasant.
The temperature ranges between 10 degree Centigrade and 30 degree Centigrade.

The climate of Vijayawada is also marked by a considerable amount of rainfall. Rainfall in Vijayawada
is caused both by the south west monsoon and the north east monsoons. The area receives a total
rainfall of 965 mm every year. Cyclones are also pretty common in the Vijayawada climate and this
has resulted in the naming of the place as "Blazewada".
