Hyderabad : Speculations are now over! Amravati is the new capital of Andhra Pradesh
Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu made an official announcement after the cabinet meet on Wednesday
Reason behind choosing Amravati: It was a prosperous and historically important city, says Naidu
The new capital has both "vaasthu balam and nama balam", the chief minister added in his statement
He also said that experts from Singapore are making a plan to develop Amravati and make it a best city in the world
