As the new State of Telangana began celebrations to mark its birth, Andhra Pradesh prepared to put its sense of loss behind and deal with the new reality.

Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister-designate Chandrababu Naidu, who will be sworn in on June 8, met senior officials, including Chief Secretary I.Y.R. Krishna Rao, to discuss the finances and power situation in his State.

Hopes and expectations in the new Andhra Pradesh are riding on the building of its capital city, and in anticipation of special status to the State and a string of development projects. Hyderabad was the centre of attention in Andhra Pradesh, and many now see the bifurcation as an opportunity for the development of parts of the Seemandhra region that had got left behind all these years.
