The Andhra Pradesh High Court has stayed the State Government's move to trifurcate the State's capital at Kurnool, Vishakhapatnam and Amaravati on plea moved by a group of farmers.

The farmers in the petitioner array had earlier volunteered to give up their land as part of a land pooling scheme started by the previous regime towards consolidating land for a single capital at Amaravati.
