Donakonda has become a hot topic across the state of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana. The reason is that the small town in prakasam district is perceived as under serious consideration for the proposed capital in Seemandhra region.
Donakonda has been in news since the town is mentioned in the reports sent to the Central Government by the state government on the facilities and connectivity in the region.
The huge advantage for the government to tilt towards Donakonda is the availability of more than 50000 acres government land in and around Donakonda. The aerodrome in Donakonda can be used for air transport.
Donakonda is also a railway junction which connects Guntur - Bangalore. All these advantages will fetch the government to minimise the expenditure on the new capital city.
