New districts plan heats up politics in Chittoor: Inside
Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy has made his intention clear that the present 13 districts of the state will be converted into 25 districts. Though many parliamentary constituencies in the districts have welcomed the decision, the politics in the Chittoor district took a new turn.
Some of the social organizations have been gathering support from all the parties except the ruling party. These social organizations wanted that Chittoor should get the first preference when the division is made. They have demanded Madanapalle to be the focal point of the district because of four municipalities and six assembly constituencies and becoming the biggest revenue division. They have faulted the government's likely move to merge Madanapalle with that of Rajampet division.
