They made it clear to Narayana that Kurnool was the ideal place to setup the High Court. Recounting the provisions in the Sri Bagh Pact, they said that if the capital was constructed at Kurnool, then the High Court would have been set up in Guntur. However, as the capital was being constructed at Amaravati near Guntur, then Kurnool should get a High Court. they added.
