The YSR Congress Party (YSRCP), led by YS Jagan Mohan Reddy, promoted decentralized development in the state and won a landslide victory in 2019. Reddy had promised to establish Visakhapatnam as the administrative center and hold the oath of office there.

In December 2019, the YSRCP government proposed three capitals: Kurnool would be the judicial capital, Visakhapatnam would be the executive capital, and Amaravati would be the legislative capital.The YSRCP government was ordered by the Andhra Pradesh High Court in March 2022 to develop Amaravati as the state capital. The government appealed this ruling in the Supreme Court, where it is currently pending.

Naidu made a campaign vow to bring Amaravati development back to life. In an attempt to assert his claim to form the government, Jana Sena leader Pawan Kalyan and Chandrababu Naidu arrived to Raj Bhavan in Vijayawada today.
