Speaking on the occasion, Vanaja has alleged that the Union government has colluded with the State government on three capitals issue and demanded that the Centre should intervene and oppose the idea of three capitals for Andhra Pradesh.
She questioned what about the fate of thousands of farmers, who gave their lands for construction of capital Amaravati. She wondered why Jana Sena president Pawan Kalyan was also not opposing the idea of three capitals.
